Butterflies and moths come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours…but why? Some use colours and eye spots to camouflage themselves from predators or prey. Others have weird antennae and one moth can even squirt acid from its head. From strangely-shaped caterpillars to useful silk moths and the amazing see-through glasswing butterfly, discover some of the world’s strangest insects and learn all about why they are so weird!
