Poster of the gray Hamadryas butterfly from ARTIS100034
Poster with a print of the gray Hamadryas butterfly in ARTIS. Illustrated by illustrator Annemieke Bunjes, known for the signage in ARTIS. The poster is printed on Tintoretto paper.
These butterflies are predominantly brown and white. There is a red spot on the front wing. Due to their color, they are very well camouflaged when they sit against a tree trunk. They are also often very high in the trees, at a height of 10 meters, which makes them difficult to find. They can then sit still for hours, with their wings open and their heads down. This way they keep an eye on whether a potential partner comes close. The posterior eyespots have orange scales ahead of black crescents.
- Dimensions 68 cm x 48.5 cm.
