Spend a moment in our Butterfly Rainforest with Ryan talking about the Tree nymph, Idea leuconoe, native to Southeast Asia. It is also called the paper kite or the rice paper butterfly. Because of the species of plants it feeds on, it is toxic to predators.
These butterflies are large, and tend to glide or flutter, making them quite noticeable in the exhibit!
