Known for our high quality mounted butterflies, this specimen is sure to please. Interestingly, the “tails” at the end of the swallowtail’s (Papilio palinurus) wings are a result of evolution, seen by birds as a butterfly neck, which is where they aim when attacking butterflies. This survival feature leaves predators flying away with a small piece of wing rather than the entire butterfly. Professionally mounted by an entomologist and framed in a sealed shadowbox display, this gorgeous insect art comes with a vintage style museum card with information about the specimen’s natural origin, as well as information regarding its ethical source.
