Wednesday Explorers Club ~ butterfly tongues!
Next time a butterfly drops by for a sip, edge closer and take a look at its long tongue. These guys don't need straws - they carry their own tubular sucking device which rolls up when they fly. Did you know that a butterfly's tongue is called a proboscis? You can learn lots more about butterfly tongues here - plus look at cool magnifications of the tongue.
