* in the ''{{Discworld}}'', the Quantum Weather Butterfly is ''the'' species responsible for storms and tornadoes. You've heard of chaos theory and the idea that a single butterfly flapping its wings in South America can set off a chain of events that results in torrential hurricanes ten thousand miles away? Well, on the Discworld, it literally exists. This is the species. It is believed this ability is both a survival trait and a mating display designed to attract a partner. More is explained in ''Literature/InterestingTimes''.
