Butterflies undergo four stages of transformation or metamorphosis from caterpillar to an adult butterfly: egg, larva, pupa and adult.
Butterfly eggs are hard-ridged outer layer of shell lined with a thin coating of wax which prevents the egg from drying out before the larva has had time to mature. Each egg contains tiny funnel-shaped openings at one end which allow sperm to enter and fertilize the egg. Butterfly and moth eggs vary in size between species, but are either spherical or ovate.
The larvae, or caterpillars are multi-legged and eat plant leaves. While most caterpillars are herbivorous, a few species eat insects.
The caterpillar transforms into a pupa where the wing starts to form a structure that is compressed from top to bottom and which rapidly unfolds to a full adult butterfly.
Adult or Imago
The adult stage of the butterfly is called the imago. An adult butterfly has six legs. After it emerges from the pupa, a butterfly cannot fly until the wings are unfolded. A newly-emerged butterfly needs to spend some time inflating its wings with blood and letting them dry. Some butterfly wings may take up to one to three hours to dry.
There is also a fruit nursery at the Davao Butterfly House where several varieties of fruit plants are available for sale such as the popular Dragon Fruit, Banana Tree, Dwarf Coconut Tree, Giant Balimbing Tree, Durian Tree, Atis Tree, Fig Tree, Abiu Tree, Lanzones Tree, and many others.
