Butterfly Sex: Cool Weather Makes Female Seducers - ABC News

Quote:
When certain caterpillars are raised in warm, moist conditions they grow into what some would consider traditional roles — males pursuing demure females.
But new research has found that when they are raised in dry, cool conditions, it's the ladies that become aggressive adults, actively courting the guys.
Hmmmm...how many of you ladies get frisky in the winter?

It was an interesting article, so I thought I'd share. Not a whole lot of butterfly info to post to my adopted forum lately!
