Monarch and Swallowtail Frame -- Danaus plexippus and Papilio multicaudata
This frame is an excellent teaching tool. So many mistake swallowtails for monarch butterflies, so this frame puts them together!
Monarch specimens we use are sourced from butterfly farms working with healthier east coast populations. If you would prefer a different species of swallowtail butterfly, just let us know. We rear, collect, and stock a wide variety of US natives.
Two gorgeous real butterfly specimens. One Monarch and one Swallowtail. Select "tilted" flying position or symmetrical centered position.
