The Monarch butterfly was adopted as the official state insect by the Texas Legislature in 1995. The Monarch is the only species of butterfly that does not hibernate, but migrates in changing seasons. Every fall and spring, millions of Monarch butterflies make their way between Canada and Mexico. They usually stop throughout Texas to take a break from this 3,000 mile trip.
