Animals

‘Together we learn, believe and achieve’
Animals are the most popular attraction in the Amazon, there is a huge variety of different speicies of animals. We are going to tell you lots of interesting facts about them.

Blue Morpho butterfly

As its common name implies, the blue Morpho butterfly’s wings are bright blue, edged with black. The blue Morpho is among the largest butterflies in the world, with wings spanning from five to eight inches. Their vivid, iridescent blue colouring is a result of the microscopic scales on the backs of their wings, which reflect light. The underside of the Morpho’s wings, on the other hand, is a dull brown colour with many eyespots, providing camouflage against predators such as birds and insects when its wings are closed.
