Real-world information[edit]

Cairns Birdwing Real.jpg

The birdwing is based on the paradise birdwing, the Ornithoptera paradisea and not the actual Cairns birdwing, the Ornithoptera euphorion as it does not have the right shape of wings. The paradise birdwing is sexually dimorphic, males and females differ in size, shape and color of the wings. The ones depicted in the game are males, who are colorful, whereas females are usually dark brown.
