Question Answer
reproduction is the process which parents produce offspring.
Butterflies have 4 stages of life: egg, caterpillar, pupa and butterfly.
Incomplete Metamorphosis has three stages: Egg, Nymph, and Adult
life cycle . The course of developmental changes through which an organism passes from its inception through the stage at which it reproduces.
The change from child to adult is slow and continuous.
All organisms go through stages of development.
Environmental conditions such as water, temperature, and light affect the development of organisms.
In most mammals the stages of life go from the fertilized egg, to the fetus, the juvenile, and then to the adult.
Scientists can even describe the life cycle of a star or a plastic bottle.
Even families can have a life cycle.
Depending on the animal species, some animals live very solitary lives and only meet up with other animals from the same species to mate.
Animals spend their lives hunting for food and water, staying safe and looking for a mate to reproduce with.
All animals that need another animal to reproduce are split into males and females.
A small number of animals are asexual meaning that they have both male and female reproductive organs.
Slugs, snails and barnacles are all asexual animals.
Before an animal can reproduce it must first find a partner.
Some species of male bird have brightly coloured feathers and do elaborate dances in order to try and get the female to notice them.
The male animals of many species often have features to attract females such as long noses or large manes.
The ability to reproduce is the most fundamental part of life for any living species as it allows that species to multiply and evolve.
The main important part of a life is to have a base of reproduction to evolve again.
