Add a magical touch to your educational play setups, small world play setups and fairy gardens with these beautiful large Monarch Butterfly figurines.
An incredibly iconic species of butterfly, the monarch can be found in many parts of Northern and Central America. Monarch butterflies are pollinators, which is why you can often see them by flowers during the spring and summer!
Not just for looks, the monarch butterflies’ vibrant coloration is actually a defensive mechanism. Monarchs are aposematic, which means they employ bright and contrasting colors to ward off potential predators. Bright colorations deter predators because often in nature, such appearances indicate the creature is poisonous or has a foul taste. Although monarch butterflies are in no way poisonous, they make it seem like they are in order to elude predators!
