Butterfly

The butterfly can live almost any where like the Amazon River and jungle. The butterfly has different color wing patterns. Also butterflies are really beautiful. Some butterflies are poisonous. Some butterflies are really cool because they can blend in. That is how the butterfly became a constellation.

snake

I like water snakes because they swim a lot in the water. Also I like water snakes because they fight with other water snakes and you don’t know who is going to win. And I like water snakes because they catch their pray in the water. This snake became a Constellation because it helped other snakes and became the greatest snake in the world.
