By looking at this Owl Butterfly from Venezuela on display at the Newfoundland Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion in Newfoundland Labrador, one can see why it is named as such. Two large eyespots on the underside of the wings represent the head of an owl especially when held with its head down.
These markings are considered to be a set of fake eyes which scare off any predators. When visiting the Newfoundland Insectarium and Butterfly Pavilion, be sure to see the display of the Owl Butterfly from Venezuela.
