Butterflies: Reptiland’s colorful inhabitants return April 19, 2014!
*Our butterfly exhibit is currently closed for the season. It will reopen on April 19, 2014.
Experience hundreds of butterﬂies in ﬂight as you walk through our native butterﬂy greenhouse. Almost everyone appreciates the beauty of butterﬂies, but how much do you really know about them? Did you know that butterﬂies can’t hear? Like snakes, they sense vibrations through the surfaces they touch. Did you know butterﬂies are found everywhere but Antarctica; they taste with their feet; and some, like the Monarch, can migrate up to 2,000 miles? Visit us April 19 through October 31, 2014 to experience these delicate beauties in ﬂight.
Want a closer look at these beautiful insects? We now offer the chance to feed them! Ask our staff in the butterfly greenhouse for details.
