Sunny & Co has put out a very pretty Mourning Cloak Butterfly puppet.
This butterfly is realist in coloring of the wings and it has a furry body.
The 15 or 8 inch wing span on this puppet makes it easy to pick a great size for kids, not so big that they can’t handle it and not so small that it can’t be seen to tell stories or be part of their imaginary game.
So, be sure to check out this cool puppet, makes a great gift for kids and bug lovers of most any age…
Mourning Cloak Butterflies like to eat tree sap. They will walk down the trunk of a tree to the sap and feed with their head pointing down. They will also eat rotting fruit, and sometimes on flower nectar.
Adult Mourning Cloaks range in size from around 2 3/4 – 3 3/4 inches.
These are one of the only butterflies that can live through winter. They are found all over the United States.
