All animals, including humans, are born, they get older and bigger and some will go on to have children. In the end, all animals die. We call this a life cycle.
All living things follow a life cycle specific to their species. Some are very short such as a few hours or days while others last for hundreds of years. There is no start or end point, but rather a continuous flow (cycle) that includes fertilisation, birth, growth and reproduction. Some species go through a complete change during their life cycle – think of butterflies and others produce offspring that remain very similar – like us!
