Is It a Butterfly or a Moth?   

1     Can you tell the difference between a butterfly and a moth? At first glance, the two insects have identical body structures.

Both of them love drinking sugary liquids (such as nectar) through a long, straw-like feeding tube called a proboscis. When a butterfly or a moth is not eating, it coils up its proboscis and stores it neatly under its head.
