From Caterpillar To Cocoon To Beautiful Butterfly

How does a caterpillar become a butterfly? Scientific American explains that: 'As children, many of us learn about the wondrous process by which a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly. The story usually begins with a very hungry caterpillar hatching from an egg. The caterpillar, or what is more scientifically termed a larva, stuffs itself with leaves, growing plumper and longer through a series of molts in which it sheds its skin. One day, the caterpillar stops eating, hangs upside down from a twig or leaf and spins itself a silky cocoon or molts into a shiny chrysalis. Within its protective casing, the caterpillar radically transforms its body, eventually emerging as a butterfly or moth.'

Pretty amazing right? Science is so cool! We find it absolutely mind boggling that butterflies were once caterpillars, the only difference is that caterpillars have not been through the scientific process that makes them butterflies. It's all a matter of time, and science! Learn more here.

Andrea Mangoni, a worker in Venice, told Reuters that due to the low tide and low traffic amidst Italy's lockdown restrictions, marine life has been appearing in the now still waters of the canal.  

"I was able to film a jellyfish that was swimming close to the San Marco square, only few inches below the water surface," Mangoni said. 

Attilio Rinaldi, a professor from the Department of Biological, Geological, and Environmental Sciences at Italy's University of Bologna, confirmed with Reuters that the jellyfish species seen in the video is called the rhisostoma pulmo.

Absolutely crazy how magical it is to see all this marine life in those canals!
