Friday Fun Fact – Sinai Baton Blue Butterfly

Sinai Baton Blue Butterfly

The Sinai Baton Blue Butterfly is the world’s smallest butterfly, no larger than a thumbnail.

It is only found on Mt Sinai and a few surrounding peaks.

With such a tiny distribution, its survival is at risk from any disturbance to its habitat.

Being endemic to Egypt and endangered, it has become an emblem for conservation issues in the country.

We think it is gorgeous!
