My Name: Arima
My Breed/Species: Zebra longwing butterfly
What I like to eat: I use my long straw-like tongue to enjoy delicious fruits and flowers. Do you like fruit?
My “Personality”: I enjoy a nice slow flight around my Zoo home.
How old am I: I arrived as a caterpillar to my new home at KidZooU. But now that I'm a butterfly, I'm a grown-up.
Where did I come from: I can be found in the southern United States from Texas to Florida. I can also be found in Central America and nothern South America.
What makes me unique: At night, large groups of us will sleep together on tree limbs. We return to the same place, called a roost, night after night.
Here are some of my butterfly friends you can also find in KidZooU:
