What happened to Butterfly? Butterfly is back at Suaq but his face has changed a lot since his last visit two months ago. He has several wounds which he most likely got from a fight with another male. Since Islos deafeat in 2014 the Suaq flanged males seem to be unable to agree on who is the new local dominant.
