Magnificent Monarchs$33.00 AUD

A beautiful picture book of the Magnificent Monarch butterfly of North America and the story of their mysterious migrations from a home base in Mexico for the first generation to breed, lay eggs in the poisonous milkweed in the southern states of the USA and die.

The second generation traveling further to the northern states where milkweed is also to be found, to again breed, lay eggs and die, the third generation flies further north to the southern edge of Canada and repeats the process, and the fourth generation flies non-stop back to their base in Mexico.
