I wonder whether Michelle might be thinking of a moth ... aren't there
silkmoths that only live a short time, and never feed (as adults)?
As children, of course, they are voracious.
Big showy moths count as butterflies, you'll recall, in the folk memory.
(and brown little boring butterflies count as moths. Except in the
British Isles. Verbum sap.)
