- "I caught an agrias butterfly! I guess this one agreed with me!"
Careful, if you miss on your first swing of the net, or run near them, they pick up speed and are harder to catch.
An information board in the bug exhibit will provide information about this bug.
"Agrias butterflies are argued to have the most beautiful wings of all butterfly species. They're capable of flying quite fast, making them more difficult to catch than a number of their peers. Their wings sport three colors -- red, blue, and black -- but many have different patterns and shapes."
Agrias Butterflies are a tropical genus consisting of multiple species all native to the rainforests of South America. Due to its habits it is rarely seen and only comes down to drink from puddles and to feed. Most sightings occur early in the morning, as this is when butterflies of all types will feed; when the temperature rises they retreat to the shady canopy. Many closely related species occur, each of which sport a unique color and marking combination.
