Clear-winged butterfly

Some butterflies have transparent wings to make them less visible to preators. The butterfly in this picture is feeding on animal dung. Dung can provide important nutrients. In the rainforest few resources are wasted -- everything is recycled.




The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
