Butterflies are among the most beautiful and strange creatures on the planet. Today you will see them doing something completely crazy.

The host of a popular YouTube channel The Jungle Diaries, Phil Torres, recently posted a video from the Peruvian Amazon in which he shows eight butterflies species drinking turtles salty tears. This phenomenon may look odd, but it’s not uncommon as the butterflies need the sodium and it is available in turtle tears.
