Peleides Blue Morpho

Where to find: Tropical House

(Morphus Peleides)

Is probably the most admired butterfly we have. With its 10-12 centimeter wing span and its metallic blue color, hovering almost majestically around the tropical house and impress most. Equally impressive is its wings widespread, as is the camouflaged when it sits still, the brown underside can be difficult to discern.

Peleides Blue Morpho larvae live here in the tropical house at Coral plant (Eurytrina).
