have eight legs, three hearts, and a brain that can learn and solve problems.

guest1: Some are red, some are greenish, and some are the color of rust.

erik clark: Why do butterflies fly?

guest1: They fly because they have wings, and they go from flower to flower to gather nectar to drink. They

have to land on the flowers, and slurp the nectar up with their tongues.

guest1: When they're small, and before they build a cocoon, they are caterpillars, and they eat leaves.

erik clark: Why do octopus have eight legs?

guest1: They have eight legs that they use to grab their food and eat it (other animals). They also use their

legs to swim and escape their enemies.

guest1: Eight is also a part of their name. Eight can also be octo.

guest1: We have a couple more minutes, do you have another question?

erik clark: Why do butterflies like to live in trees?

the leaves. Trees are also camouflage
