Many of you probably know that all butterflies were once caterpillars, but how exactly does the transformation happen?
This video will help answer all sorts of questions like why caterpillars eat so much and how they turn into such beautiful butterflies? Hopefully, it will make you appreciate how truly amazing the caterpillar really is, instead of just the butterfly.
Who knew that caterpillars could be so fascinating! This video can help us to gain a greater appreciation for everyday things in nature. There is always something unexpected to learn!
The next time you see a caterpillar just think of all the work it is doing now so that it can grow into a beautiful butterfly.
DEEP LOOK is a science video series that explores big science by going very, very small, from KQED and PBS Digital Studios.
Using macro photography and microscopy they are looking at the world up close.
