Spend a moment in our Butterfly Rainforest with Ryan talking about the Spicebush swallowtail, Papilio troilus, native to Florida. This butterfly is a mimic. It relies on predators mistaking its markings for a Pipevine swallowtail, which is toxic.
Spicebush swallowtail butterflies can be found throughout Florida except for the Miami area and the Keys!
