Interesting Facts

Butterflies can't fly if they're cold.
 Since they're cold-blooded animals, they can't regulate their own body temperatures. If the air temperature falls below 55ºF, butterflies are rendered immobile, unable to flee from predators or feed. When air temperatures range between 82º-100ºF, butterflies can fly with ease.
