Tiger Swallowtail - 6x5 Riker Mount
Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus)
- Wingspan: 3 - 4 inches
- Origin: North America
Many North Americans are familiar with the Tiger Swallowtail (or Eastern Tiger Swallowtail) since many are spotted fluttering in our own backyards. The soft yellow color against the jet black stripes is dazzling, and the tails will make you think this swallowtail is much more exotic than it really is! Also, you'll be able to spot a male Tiger Swallowtail by the grey-blue banding on the bottom wings, which the female lacks. Those with Tiger Swallowtails in their homes have really earned their stripes!
