Parides photinus spends its larval (caterpillar) stage eating as a full-time job. It only consumes Pelican Flowers (which smell like dirty feet to us), from which it acquires foul-tasting toxins. With their striking white and red spikes, caterpillars warn would-be predators that they aren’t an easy meal - and any bird foolish enough to try is bound to feel sick and sorry.
Drawing inspiration from the cattleheart's striking colors and spikes, John Ford designed a modern, unisex fashion scarf to make you feel as cozy as a chrysalis.
100% acrylic, double sided, and featuring a subtle snail logo. Originally from our March 2022 Bug Box and limited to 75 pieces.
