Is a Butterfly an Animal?

Yes, a butterfly is considered an animal!

More specifically, it belongs to the insect class (Insecta) within the animal kingdom (Animalia). Butterflies are part of the order Lepidoptera, which also includes moths.

Turns out, if you grow the right Larval Host Plants, you will attract butterfly animals to you! For example, there is a special connection between the Monarch Butterfly and Milkweed plants.

If we Plant More Milkweed, we will help the Monarch Butterfly… one day at a time!
