Spend a moment in our Butterfly Rainforest with Ryan talking about the Zebra longwing butterfly, Heliconius charithonia, a Florida native and our state butterfly. This species lives in areas of the southern U.S., and south through Central America and into South America.
Zebra longwing butterflies are toxic and their markings warn predators not to eat them!
