This Toob is a perfect gift for butterfly collectors young and old! It features 8 of the world's most beautiful butterflies, including a Red Glider, Green Swallowtail, Orange Barred Sulphur, White Angled Sulphur, Evenus Regalis, Anaea Clytemnestra, and a Papilio Garleppi. History: Often seen floating between flowers, butterflies are brightly colored insects that live off of the nectar in plants. Because butterflies emerge from their chrysalises (similar to a cocoon) during the warmer months, they're often seen and represented as the heralds of spring and summer. Did you know that most butterflies use their vibrant colorations as a defense? While you might think they attract attention, they actually scare predators off or help the butterflies blend into the flowers and fauna where they feed. Characteristics: Turn your house into a butterfly conservatory with these immaculately hand-painted and professionally sculpted figurines.
