Watching a Butterfly Hatch Looks Beautifully Alien

Yesterday 3:25pm

One of the wildest things that happens in nature is caterpillars go to sleep one day and then transform into a damn butterfly after a month. I thought that as a kid, and I still think it now. Like, that’s the closest thing we’ve got to actual sorcery on Earth.

But it’s just an egg turning into a larva to a pupa to a butterfly. Watch as David Attenborough explain the process as only he can in this clip from Micro Monsters. Plus, you get to see super gnarly footage of the butterfly emerging from its chrysalis like some sort of hatching alien.
