Our fabulous reporter of the week, Mr. Kai, shared with us some fascinating facts you might not know about the butterfly. Scientists have discovered butterfly fossils dating back to 201 million years ago. However, flowers only date back to 130 million years ago. Hmmm. So butterflies used to look different? Turns out the butterfly evolved and developed the proboscis, it's straw like tongue, in it's current form once flowers started to appear. So cool. I think we have some future paleontologists in the room. Thanks Kai!
What a perfectly sunny day out on the playground!
