Monarch butterfly

Danaus plexippus


Vivid orange and black markings, bold behaviour around humans


Only lay eggs on milkweed. Not warm blooded. Fly south but do not return, rather their children do, without any help to navigate their way. Also, they are 'near threatened,' or other words, endangered.
