Slide In the 1980s we
successfully bred
several generations of
this fascinating South
American species in a
tropical glasshouse.
Although classified as a
'swallowtail' this species
looks like a large
Heliconian and is an example of Batesian mimicry, where the harmless Orange Mimic has evolved to imitate the warning colouration of the Heliconians (which are distasteful to birds).
