Jewels of Nature will add dramatic flare to any room. This butterfly is farm bred, with a certain number released into their natural habitat to ensure their population remains stable.

Product Information Card (included on the back of each frame): The purple spotted swallowtail is a large and colourful butterfly found only in Papua New Guinea. The swallowtail family is found on all continents except for Antarctica, and differs from other families because as a caterpillar it has an osmeterium behind its head. The osmeterium is a fork-like organ that can be inverted when the caterpillar is being attacked. It emits a foul secretion called terpene, which can be found in turpentine and resin.

This wooden shadow box showcases the G. weiskei butterfly; a beautiful display piece for any wall, and a great gift for any butterfly lover or entomologist!
