The blue morpho is among the largest butterflies in the world, with wings spanning from five to eight inches. Blue morphos live in the tropical forests of Latin America from Mexico to Colombia.The blue morpho’s entire lifespan lasts only 115 days, which means most of their time is spent eating and reproducing.Blue morpho's are severely threatened by deforestation of tropical forests and habitat fragmentation. Humans provide a direct threat to this spectacular creature because their beauty attracts artists and collectors from all over the globe who wish to capture and display them. Aside from humans, birds like the jacamar and flycatcher are the adult butterfly’s natural predators.
