Caligo atreus, the yellow-edged giant owl, is a butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. The species can be found from Mexico to Peru.

Like the common Owl butterfly (Caligo Memnon), it's relative, Owl Atreus, is also easy to maintain and is a long-liver among all species of butterflies supplied alive. Slightly more fearful than the ordinary Owl. He likes to feast on fermented fruits (bananas, oranges, mangoes, etc.). Unlike the usual Owl, it has a larger size and a brighter color both on the underside of the wings and on the inside. Inside the butterfly has pronounced blue and yellow stripes.

Often sits on the person herself, especially loves moving objects. Not at all shy, because she herself has good defenses against enemies — large circles in the shape of owl bird eyes on the underside of her wings. Sometimes it makes a sharp flap of its wings, thereby scaring its enemies (birds, small rodents, etc.). Most active at twilight!

Butterfly Owl - favorite photoshoot, because Her character is the most tranquil of all the other butterflies; she sits quietly and poses for the photographer. It is enough to substitute a finger and the butterfly will go to it itself.

Since these butterflies are active at dusk, they will not have to face such enemies as bats, which are also active at night. For them, butterflies harvested another protection - Kaligo is able to emit ultrasound and crackle, issued by the wings. The distorted ultrasound signal sent by the butterflies Kaligo confuses bats and they cannot find the location of the butterfly!
