1) How can you tell a Monarch butterfly from others that look like it? ("Copy cat butterflies")

2) Why do they live for such a short time?

3) How many Monarch butterflies are living today?

4) How do they fly?

5) How do they make their eggs stay on the milkweed plants? (what's the sticky stuff?)

6) How do the caterpillars make their cocoons?

7) Why can't the Monarch butterfly eat other kinds of plants? or Can they?
