I think many butterflies have odd names. The red patches on the hind wings of the Cattleheart Butterfly remind some people of a cow’s heart. Maybe that’s the origin of the name.
The Cattleheart lives in Central and South America. I don’t. My special treat to myself is to visit the nearby butterfly festival each year to see butterflies from around the world.
