The colors of the Madagascan Giant Swallowtail may be on the softer side, but they are incredibly varied with an amazing pattern and dramatic wing shape. This swallowtail has cream spots over black, with soft Fuji apple red lining the hindwings. There's also a nice ombre effect on the hindwings that fade from cream to black, but sometimes there's a slightly iridescent sheen to it! We opt to display the underside of this butterfly because, although the upper side is almost identical, it is a little less vibrant. Note the wingspan can vary quite a bit depending on how horizontal or vertical the butterfly is shaped/spread!
