I saved the caterpillars of these butterflies from certain death , when a neighbor had cut down the creeping Loranthus vines ( that he thought were simply parasitic) and had piled them up to be burned."rescued about 50+ caterpillars on the vines and after feeding and looking after them - released 41 gorgeous butterflies into the wild.
