The Tropical Butterfly House

The Tropical Butterfly House

The Tropical Butterfly House is open from Easter to end of October 2018.

In the pupae emerging box you can watch the pupa wiggle and move until the pupa split open to allow the adult butterfly to emerge. It takes many hours for its wings to dry and be ready to release into the butterfly house.

The exotic adult butterflies are colourful as they enjoy the warmth of the Tropical Butterfly House.

You may be lucky and see some butterfly eggs and/or caterpillars on the the underside of the leaves (especially the banana leaves).

Can you find one of the many stick insects in the butterfly house?
