Florida's State Butterfly

Most Florida residents don't know their state symbols, so we thought we would start to present them on this Blog.

The zebra longwing became the state butterfly in 1996. It is common in South Florida, especially in the Everglades National Park. However, it is not common in North Florida. This black and yellow butterfly is known for dining on the sweet nectar of passion flowers.
