An Intimate Study of the Secret Lives of Wild Butterflies
DVD-R; 45 min; Color/Stereo; Bullfrog Films 2006
Witness the lives of several species of butterflies as you've never seen them before! Spectacular close up photography reveals details such as the butterflies hatching from their eggs, smelling with their feet, and pushing their heads from their skulls in preparation for molting. You'll see butterflies growing new spines, flying while mated, and eating their skin. You'll discover the dozen ways butterflies use silk to survive in a hostile environment from building houses to spinning silk girdles, pads, and buttons. And you'll learn how to make your garden butterfly friendly to increase our dwindling number of wild butterflies.
This film is the perfect visual accompaniment to every butterfly class from kindergarten to college. Students will observe events in butterflies' lives that even experts have never seen!
