Monarch Butterflies travel between 1,200 and 2,800 miles (or more) from the United States and Canada to central Mexican forests. There, the butterflies hibernate in the mountain forests, where a less extreme climate provides them a better chance to survive. Adult monarch butterflies possess two pairs of brilliant orange-red wings, featuring black veins and white spots along the edges. Males, who possess distinguishing black dots along the veins of their wings, are slightly bigger than females.
Fun Facts: Each adult butterfly lives only about four to five weeks.
