Q. Do you know how does a butterfly taste its food?

Ans. A butterfly stands on its food to taste it. Its feet have tiny, hair-like sensors that are known as chemoreceptors. These chemoreceptors help in detecting the right match of plant chemicals if they are safe either as food for caterpillar or nectar for adult butterfly.
