Insects of WolfQuest 2.7

WolfQuest 2.7 insects provide visual and audio interest rather than accurate, species-specific behaviors. They are found throughout the game in most habitats.


Three butterflies and one moth are represented in WolfQuest:

  • Mourning cloak (Nymphalis antiopa)
  • Monarch (Danaus plexippus)
  • Western tiger swallowtail (Papilio rutulus)
  • Columbia silkmoth (Hyalophora columbia


Green darner dragonflies live near water where they hunt other insects ferociously. They are very agile fliers and have excellent eyesight. Cool fact: dragonfly larvae live in the water for several years before they transform into fantastic flying dragons!


Clouds of buzzing flies are found on WolfQuest carcasses and at other random spots. In real life, adult bottle or blow flies lay their eggs on decaying organic matter to provide food for their babies (maggots). Insects are an important part of the ecosystem. Flies are a key part of the decay process and are usually the first insects to arrive after an animal dies. If you think flies are gross, think of how unpleasant the world would be if it was filled with carcasses.
