| In spite of it's brilliant coloring, the stunningly
beautiful tawny rajah can camouflage itself superbly
among dried leaves. Part of the nymphalidae
family, the tawny rajah, or charaxes bernardus,
can be found in woodlands, often seen perched on
canopies to guard its territory. Known as a powerful
flyer, this butterfly has a wingspan of two and
three-quarters inches and is said to flap its wings
with such force that a fluttering sound can be
heard when at close range. The tawny rajah butterfly
feeds on tree sap, over-ripe fruit and animal dung.
Its the perfect single butterfly for your collection!
