Nis forNymph

A nymph is a larval stage many kinds of insects go through. Nymphs tend to be quite similar to the adult insect, unlike insects like butterflies that have very different larval stage. Nymphs gradually grow to full size, shedding their skin each time they outgrow it, and the final time they shed their skin they make the transformation to their adult form.
