American Painted Lady Butterfly – Here’s a fun fact about butterflies…as strange as it may sound, they use their feet to smell. This ability protects them from toxic plants. Knob-shaped sensors on the end of their antennae pick up smells that lead them to flowers with nectar. When it lands on a flower, its feet detect the smell of the substances in the plant and decides if they are suitable for food or not.
