Dr. Doubt has stated that Monarch butterflies don’t have any characteristic behaviors that increase the odds of reproduction compared to mammals, who expend a lot of energy caring for their offspring. Your job, as an investigative zoologist, is to use an argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how Monarch butterflies use characteristic behaviors and specialized physical traits to increase the probability of reproductive success – and prove him wrong! (Hint: Research the characteristic behaviors that help their reproductive success and list them below with your scientific reasoning. Produce visual aids as well, if they help prove your argument.)
