Written By Demi Yurfina on Senin, 04 April 2016 | 00.03

The Giant Swallowtail (Paipilio Cresphontes) ia a wonderfully-“exotic”-looking butterfly. They are widely spread in various parts of North America, particularly in the south and the east. With a wingspan about 10-16 cm, it is the largest butterfly in Canada and the United States.
The body and wings are dark brown to black with yellow bands. There is a yellow ‘eye’ in each wing tail. The abdomen has bands of yellow along with the previously mentioned brown.
Papilon Cresphontes is mostly seen in deciduous forest that falling of its leaves annually and in citrus orchards where they are considered major pest. Some animals defend themselves from predator by mimicry but the giant swallowtail wards off the predatorsby producing polymorphism liquid. They fly between May toAUgust where there are two broods in the north and three in the south. Their main habitat is the mountain rangess in Jamaica. Swallowtail butterflies begin with the eggs. When they are hatched, they grow into caterpillars before changing into chrysalis. Soon they will become adult butterflies.
