Urania leilus Interesting Facts:

Urania leilus is very beautiful like most butterflies, but it’s actually a day flying moth from Peru. Their caterpillar host plant is toxic, much like the relationship between monarchs and milkweed. These toxins remain inside the caterpillar for the rest of their lives and the bright coloration of the wings warn predators of its toxicity.
