Monarch butterflies are one of nature's most recognizable creatures, known for their bright colors and epic annual migration from the United States and Canada to Mexico. Yet there is much more to the monarch than its distinctive presence and mythic journeying.
Monarch larvae are specialist herbivores of plants in the family Asclepiadaceae ( milkweeds), and have been recorded feeding on 27 different North American species in this family (Malcolm and Brower 1989).
