Hypolimnas anomala and its "sister species" antilope are a fascinating pair of butterflies which have a unique way of protecting their offspring. They lay their eggs in large batches on the upper surface of leaves, and then stand guard over them, forming a protective umbrella to shield them from parasitoid wasps. They remain in this position until the eggs hatch and the tiny caterpillars have dispersed several days later.
