Photo: Giant Owl Butterfly Victoria

Victoria Butterfly Gardens in Victoria, Canada is the ideal place for tourists to get a close look at a Giant Owl Butterfly.

The Giant Owl Butterfly resides at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens in Canada along with many other species of butterflies but in the wild they are found from Mexico through to South America. This large butterfly is mainly brown in color with tan colored tips on their wings.

The big spot on the wing of the Giant Owl Butterfly is used for defense and when they spread their wings the two eyes resemble an owl's face. Little birds that feed on butterflies in turn will get eaten by owls so they do not attempt to go after the Giant Owl Butterfly as it scares them.

When the Giant Owl Butterfly is a caterpillar it is one of the ugliest caterpillars around but as you can see it evolves into a stunning looking butterfly. A young Giant Owl Butterfly feeds on banana leaves which carries many important nutrients needed for the butterfly to grow.

The Victoria Butterfly Gardens is situated in the Greater Victoria region of Brentwood Bay and has become and extremely popular place for tourists. ... continue below the picture...
