Description: A.This is a drawing of a monarch caterpillar on a milkweed plant. Monarch caterpillar eats two hundred times their weight in milkweed. Interesting fact; monarch caterpillars only eat plants part of the milkweed family and nothing else, as it is the only type of plant that the monarch butterfly will lay its eggs on. Therefore, the milkweed plant is the first type of food that the caterpillar, once out of its egg, has access to.

B.1 is a drawing of a male monarch.B.2 is a drawing of a female monarch. The difference is very subtle and when you do not know what you are looking for, is very easy to miss. The male monarch has a dot on both of his bottom wings.
