goldenReptile postermourning cloakMEET THE NEWEST MEMBER OF OUR BUTTERFLY FAMILY / THE MOURNING CLOAK is a large butterfly, with a wingspan of up to three and a half inches. It is easy to identify by its markings. No other butterfly looks like this one. Mourning Cloaks are very dark brownish-maroon with pale, cream-colored edges, which often look ragged. They have bright blue spots along the edges. Underneath, the Mourning Cloak’s wings are blackish-brown. If you look carefully, you can see some green markings. This butterfly is perfectly camouflaged when it rests on a tree trunk with its wings folded back. Mourning Cloaks are seen in open woods, parks, gardens, and along the edges of streams, lakes, and ponds. Adult Mourning Cloaks drink from some nectar plants (like Milkweed and Red Maple), rotting fruit, tree sap (especially oaks), mud puddles, and even animal poop. By visiting flowers for nectar, they help pollinate plants.

FOR GROUPS OF 15 OR MORE, TUES. WED. AM AND EVERY DAY EVENING BOOKING ARE POSSIBLE
