Listen as Millions of Monarch Butterflies Make One of the Rarest Sounds on Earth

Monarch butterflies can be easily identified thanks to their wing pattern, but they also seem to be making the most peculiar sound when drawn together. In winter, monarch butterflies go on a mass migration journey to Mexico and California and Phil Torres from the Jungle Diaries managed to record them.

He launched a question to himself, asking “How many butterflies does it take to make a noise in the woods?”. Well, Torres found out that the answer is several million that flap their wings altogether in a large bundle.

This wing flap creates a unique sound that Torres managed to capture in a Mexican forest and later shared with the world. The moment in which all the butterflies take flight was called a “waterfall” by Torres as it resembles the smooth sound of water.
Unfortunately, the monarch butterfly entered the list of the endangered species, as its population dropped down by 26% since last year and they are facing constant threats from climate change, pesticides, and pollution coming from big cities.
To hear one of the most peculiar sounds ever recorded from the animal kingdom, make sure to watch Torres’ video.

    That was so incredible!!
    This is just a very small taste of what is to come in Jehovah God new
    System of things where he will make the earth a perfect place. Where the habitat of the Marnock butterflies will flourish as they were meant to. The Bible foretells of that time. I look forward along with 8 million plus people to share in that special time. For God promises to “make all things new.” Revelation 21:5. What a grand time that will be!! For more information on that grand time that God promises you can look at the Bible-based website
