During the process of metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly, the butterfly does not simply grow wings while inside the chrysalis. The whole body is broken down and turned into a sort of soup. Then, by means still unexplained and baffling to scientists, the body is completely METAMORPHOSIZED and reconstructed into this new winged form.
