Highland Red-belly Swallowtail - Atrophaneura horishana
This amazing butterfly, also commonly known as Aurora Swallowtail, belongs to the species Atrophaneura horishana (Papilionidae), a large-sized swallowtail with 12-18 cm of wingspan. It is endemic to Taiwan where it is protected.
This species is still fairly common in some areas, but may be threatened by commercial collecting and also by rapid destruction of habitats by overuse of herbicides and road construction in highland of Taiwan.

an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
Wasn’t it proven she could have been light or fair skinned because of her biological family lineage though?
She has lineage from Ancient Greece
There are white people native to northern Africa.
Cleopatra was white, dumbasses.
Her dynasty was descended from Alexander the Great: she was greek.
Her dynasty also perpetuated itself with constant inbreeding: Cleo was betrothed to one of her brothers, and upon his death, married another one.
SHe probably didn’t have one drop of non greek blood in her.
Deal with it, historical revisionist crybabies. Brattishly declaring “there’s literally no argument shut up” won’t make anyone take you seriously, nor will it make your feels into reals.
Also, I’m white. I still have olive skin. You know, on account of all the white people who live in the MEDITERRANEAN.
Jesus fucking christ. You stop trying so hard.
To top it off, the original post is a straw man to begin with: nobody is saying that the ancient Egyptians looked like fucking Swedes, there are just a few people who reject the Afrocentrist version of the story where Africa = 100% black and the Copts don’t exist.
What’s also funny is that this Murrica-centric revisionism of Egypt doesn’t just erase its actual inhabitants (who were not black, because tthe world isn’t divided into Sub-saharan africans and white Europeans), it actually perpetuates the erasure of the many advanced African civilisations that have flourished throughout its history: such as Ife, a kingdom that existed in Nigeria, and whose advanced and beautiful realism in their artwork was immensely shocking to the Victorians, who could not believe such beautiful and realistic sculptures could have been created on the “Dark Continent” as they called it.
As seen here:
And of course, the ruins of Greater Zimbabwe, the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Zimbabwe. These ruins date from the Iron Age.

There is absolutely NO reason for this revisionism of Egypt, especially when it allows more people to remain ignorant of the many advanced civilisations and kingdoms that have existed throughout the history of Africa in favour of a delusional portrait that erases the true ethnicity of the Egyptians, simply because they were not white.
