The caterpillar, the larval stage of butterflies (what comes out of a butterfly egg, basically a butterfly baby) creates the chrysalis. It is a safe place the caterpillar can reside while growing into what we know as a butterfly, wings and all. Often, they stay over winter in the chrysalis. The caterpillar develops “the adult insect’s structures”, and emerges winged, as an adult butterfly.
The link below has a more detailed description of the butterfly life cycle.
They have to go through a metamorphosis to transform from a caterpillar to a butterfly. They basically turn to liquid inside the chrysalis during this process and emerge about two weeks later as a butterfly.
