Join the Kratt brothers and learn how the natural eating habits and appearance of monarch butterflies serve as defense mechanisms against predators and help other butterflies to survive! Viewers learn that, as caterpillars, Monarchs eat milkweed, which can be poisonous to other animals. You will also learn that the viceroy butterfly mimic the monarch and, as a result, predators stay away from them!
