Monarch butterfly

Danaus plexippus

Description:

Vivid orange and black markings, bold behaviour around humans

Notes:

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.
