Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin 2 TEKS-Based Activities Grade 5—Copycat Monarch and Viceroy Butterflies Information Sheet Monarch and viceroy butterflies share some similarities but also have some differences. Monarch butterflies taste bad to birds because the butterflies eat the bitter-tasting milkweed plant. This makes birds avoid monarch butterflies. Viceroy butterflies, on the other hand, do not eat milkweed plants. This means that birds like to eat viceroy butterflies because the butterflies do not taste bad. However, because viceroys look like monarchs, birds have learned to avoid the viceroys as much as the monarchs. Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin 3
