Most Interesting Butterflies

Butterflies are one of the most beautiful creatures in the world. There are about 17.500 species of butterflies and each of them has unique color combinations and patterns. These patterns and color combinations mostly help them avoid their predators. While some of them are pretty normal, some of the patterns are very interesting. Here are some of the butterflies with the most interesting patterns.

Kallima Butterfly:





Kallima butterflies are experts in disguise. When their wings are open,

you can see orange and blue blended perfectly.



But when they close their wings, the beautiful blue and orange are replaced by brown and since their wings are shaped like a leaf you will not be able to tell the difference between a Kalima butterfly and a dead leaf! That’s why they are also called dead leaf butterflies. Kallima butterflies are found in Asia’s rainforests.



88 Butterfly:


88 butterflies’ forewings are mostly red and the tips have black and white stripes,

their hindwings have black and white stripes only. They are found in the South and

Central America. The name sounds very ridiculous but when you look at an

88 butterfly, the first thing you’ll notice would be the number 88 on its wings!

Glasswing Butterfly:


Glasswing butterflies are again found in South and Central America. As we can

understand from its name, its wings are transparent. While the tips of the wings

are orange and brown, the rest of them are transparent. This gives the butterfly

a very unique look. Also, these butterflies can hide almost everywhere. Another

interesting fact about this butterfly is that it can carry up to 40 times its weight.

Forest Giant Owl Butterfly:


This butterfly is known for having a pattern that looks like an owl’s eye, that’s where

it gets its name. Besides, this butterfly can grow up to 20 cm in a wingspan! They are

found in forests in Mexico, Central America, and South America.

Goliath Birdwing Butterfly:



This butterfly is the second largest butterfly in the world with a wingspan

of up to 28 cm. They are found in New Guinea. The males and females

have different colors. Males’ wings are mostly yellow and light green

but the tips are black and there are also black bands that separate the

light green parts.




Females are larger than males and they are mostly

brown but on their forewings, they have white dots and on their hindwings,

there are yellow parts with brown dots on them.
