How Do Butterflies Reproduce?

Answer

Butterflies reproduce in the same manner that other animals do, by using male sperm to fertilize an egg from a female. The male butterfly has organs on his abdomen with which he clasps, or holds onto, the female butterfly. The male delivers sperm to the female which is stored in a sac, called a bursa, and which is used by the female to fertilize her eggs as she lays them.
