Butterfly Emerges From Damaged Chrysalis

December 21, 2016
A Monarch Butterfly pupated under a leaf without enough clearance. When his chrysalis hardened, it showed a significant indent over the wing tips, the chrysalis was moved to give him more space but it was still unknown if the butterfly would come out healthy. In this video we get to see the butterfly emerge from it's cocoon, a tense moment for the butterfly and it's rescuer. The video takes nearly 20 minutes as we see the butterfly emerge and pump up it's wings.
