Papilio Antimachus ♂

Papilio Antimachus ♂

The Giant African Swallowtail has a wingspan of up to 9.8 inches and is among the largest butterflies in the world. Living in the tropical rainforests of Central Africa they're often seen in groups feeding on nectar. The butterflies have no known enemies because they are extremely toxic. Males flutter close to the ground near rivers and streams while females spend their life high up in the forest canopy. There, they feast on flowers exposed to direct sunlight and are hardly ever seen. Males can also be highly aggressive, and sometimes jostle and fight while defending a territory along a stretch of river.

  • While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies & other insect artworks on our website, we cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
  • Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity.  This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
  • We may substitute a different size frameset (in same color) depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
  • Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
  • Due to some insects having extremely fragile antennae, we may remove them preemptively because they rarely ship successfully.
