SANTA MARGARIDA ENVIRONMENTAL PARK AND TROPICAL BUTTERFLY HOUSE In a space of six hectares and in a scenery of great quality and beauty, the Environmental Park of Santa Margarida provides the visitor with direct contact with nature, enjoying moments of tranquility and having information and activities related to the environment. The park includes a garden of medicinal and aromatic plants, an outdoor amphitheater, water mirrors, a playground, a picnic area, an observation tower from which you can have an overview of the Park and one can appreciate an immense landscape, and a tropical butterfly house. The butterfly is installed in a modern building, with temperature and humidity controlled to resemble the tropical environment (23-30 ° C, 70% humidity). After a series of information about butterflies and their life cycle has been transmitted, we enter the butterfly itself. Once there, we can observe the caterpillars of the two species whose life cycle is already fully realized in this space: Dryas Iulia Fabricius, 1775 and Caligo memnon Felder, 1866. The other species are imported periodically in the form of chrysalis and are there waiting for outbreak.

Attacus atlas (Atlas moth) is a large saturniid moth endemic to the forests of Asia. Atlas moths are one of the largest lepidopterans in the world with a wingspan measuring between 25–30 cm (9.8–11.8 in) and a wing surface area of about 400 cm2 (62 in2). It is only surpassed in wingspan by the white witch (Thysania agrippina) and in wing surface area by the Hercules moth (Coscinocera hercules). Females are noticeably larger and heavier than males, while males have broader antennae. The body is disproportionately small compared to the wings. The upper side of the wings are reddish-brown with a pattern of black, white, pink, and purple lines and triangular, scale-less windows bordered in black. The undersides of the wings are paler. Both forewings have a prominent extension at the top. Atlas moths are named after either the Titan of Greek mythology (due to their size) or their map-like wing patterns. In Hong Kong, the Cantonese name translates as "snake's head moth," referring to the prominent extension of the forewing which bears resemblance to the head of a snake Adult Atlas moths are weak, unsteady fliers. To conserve energy, the moths rest during the day and fly at night...

Portugal EyeEm ZOOM it to see details... Heliconius melpomene, the postman butterfly, common postman or simply postman, is a brightly colored butterfly found throughout Mexico and Central America. It was first described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae. Its coloration coevolved with a sister species H. erato as a warning to predators of its inedibility; this is an example of Müllerian mimicry. H. melpomene was one of the first butterfly species observed to forage for pollen, a behavior that is common in other groups but rare in butterflies. Because of the recent rapid evolutionary radiation of the genus Heliconius and overlapping of its habitat with other related species, H. melpomene has been the subject of extensive study on speciation and hybridization. These hybrids tend to have low fitness as they look different from the original species and no longer exhibit Müllerian mimicry. H. melpomene possesses ultraviolet vision which enhances its ability to distinguish subtile differences between markings on the wings of other butterflies. This allows the butterfly to avoid mating with other species that share the same geographic range...

Morpho peleides, the Peleides blue morpho, common morpho or the emperor is an iridescent tropical butterfly found in Mexico, Central America, northern South America, Paraguay and Trinidad. The brilliant blue color in the butterfly's wings is caused by the diffraction of the light from millions of tiny scales on its wings. It uses this to frighten away predators, by flashing its wings rapidly. The wingspan of the blue morpho butterfly ranges from 7.5–20 cm (3.0–7.9 in). The entire blue morpho butterfly life cycle, from egg to adult is only 115 days. The larvae of Morpho peleides butterflies are occasional cannibals. These caterpillars are red brown with patches of bright green. Morpho peleides butterflies stick together in groups to deter their predators, a form of mobbing behavior.

H. melpomene was one of the first butterfly species observed to forage for pollen, a behavior that is common in other groups but rare in butterflies. Because of the recent rapid evolutionary radiation of the genus Heliconius and overlapping of its habitat with other related species, H. melpomene has been the subject of extensive study on speciation and hybridization. These hybrids tend to have low fitness as they look different from the original species and no longer exhibit Müllerian mimicry. H. melpomene possesses ultraviolet vision which enhances its ability to distinguish subtile differences between markings on the wings of other butterflies. This allows the butterfly to avoid mating with other species that share the same geographic range...

Caligo eurilochus, the forest giant owl, is an owl butterfly (tribe Brassolini of nymphalid subfamily Morphinae) ranging from Mexico, through Central America, to the Amazon River basin in South America. The type locality is Suriname. The larvae feed on several host plants, including Calathea latifolia (Marantaceae), Heychium sp. (Zingiberaceae), Heliconia latispatha (Heliconiaceae), and Musa spp. (Musaceae). The larva also feed on the fruit of most Musa species. The female lays a large number of eggs of one of the host plants and the small larvae hatch after about 3 to 5 days. Fertile eggs develop a grey ring just above the center. Infertile eggs collapse. The first instar of the larvae are white with two orange/brown stripes down the length of their body leading to two little spindles at the end. Later on in life the larvae develop hairs mimicking spines and a crown made of four horns at the back of their head. The larvae then find a high enough spot to pupate and begin the change of metamorphosis. The large owl butterfly emerges and begins to pump out its wings, later searching for food. the butterflies drink the juices of fermenting fruits and a wide variety of nectar plants.
