Scientists have been trying to figure out how a finch could be crossed with a butterfly. They tried everything. Putting butterfly blood in finches made nothing. But they found an astonishing discovery when they injected some finch blood in butterfly eggs. They found the caterpillar having wings.
- The name Butterfinch comes from butterfly and finch.
- Their eyes aren't small. Actually the eye lids are to close to each other letting it only see a fraction of a view.
