Spend a moment in our Butterfly Rainforest with Ryan talking about the Starry night cracker, Hamadryas laodamia, native to Central and South America. These butterflies are related to the other species of Cracker butterflies you’ll see in our exhibit.

You’ll be able to recognize the males because they have no white stripes on their wings, while the females look similar to other Cracker species because they do have white stripes.
