Plain Nawab Butterfly

Polyura hebe


They have such interesting features in their early life cycle. Caterpillar with a dragon head and a fruit-like pupa (looks a lot like watermelon to me. haha). And their pre-pupation is interesting too, they curl up in a 'U' shape instead of hanging upside down in a 'J' shape like typical butterflies.
