Blue Mormon

Blue mormon is a rare and pretty blue butterfly found around forested hilltops such as Matheran and Mahabaleshwar.The caterpillar of the blue mormon butterfly looks quite like the dangerous head of a snake. The two large eyes are actually markings on its back while the actual small head is hidden underneath. It is also equipped with a scent gland which releases a nasty smell if poked.
