The Great Nawab or the Polyura eudamippus is a butterfly found in India that belongs to rajahs and nawabs of the brush-footed butterflies; this species can also be found in Bhutan, Burma, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indochina, and also Thailand.

The habitat at Kaeng Krachan National Park is perfect and pristine in which this Butterfly can thrive without being poached. There are a lot of Butterfly collectors, they preserve them and pin them down on a board to be displayed and I think it is sick if they were taken alive and then killed to be preserved.
