    For the last few years, we've been looking for an opportunity to display and possibly raise Atala butterflies here at MOSI Outside (Museum of Science and Industry, Tampa), and time has finally arrived! This species is found only in South Florida right now, but may have originally had a much wider range. The story of this butterfly is closely linked to that of its host plant, coontie. They serve as both a cautionary tale and an exciting success story.
