Emperor's Paradise

Morpho peleides (The Emperor) butterflies live in the rainforests of South America, and can be found in Mexico and Central America.
These butterflies stick together in groups to deter their predators, a form of mobbing behavior.
The entire Blue Morpho butterfly lifecycle, from egg to adult is only 115 days.
