_DSC6247Walk Through A Living Butterfly Habitat
Enter a stunning, three-story glass structure built around a 50-foot waterfall! This simulated, tropical rain forest is filled with exotic plants and hundreds of gorgeous, living butterflies. These beautiful, delicate creatures, imported from butterfly farms around the world, will delight you as they flutter through the vegetation, stop to sip nectar or fruit juices, and occasionally alight on lucky visitors.
Continue downstairs to the “Insects and Us” section, where you’ll learn about what entomologists do for a living, as well as beekeeping, butterfly gardening, mosquito control, and – gulp! – insects as food! Before exiting, those with toddlers in tow will want to stop off at the “Land of Beeyond” to do a puzzle or two, read an insect-themed storybook, or play in the giant beehive.

Caminar a través de un entorno de Mariposas
Camine dentro de una impresionante estructura de cristal de tres pisos construida alrededor de una cascada de 50 pies! Esta imitación de la selva tropical está llena de plantas exóticas y cientos de bellas, mariposas vivas. Estas criaturas hermosas, delicadas, importadas de granjas de mariposas de todo el mundo, le encantará, ya que revolotean a través de la vegetación, se detienen a tomar jugos o néctares de frutas, y de vez en cuando se posan sobre afortunados visitantes.
Continuar abajo a la sección “Los insectos y somos”, donde usted aprenderá acerca de lo que hacen los entomólogos para ganarse la vida, así como la apicultura, de las mariposas, el control de mosquitos, y – gulp! – Insectos como alimento! Antes de salir, los que tienen niños pequeños a cuestas querrán hacer una parada en la “Tierra de Beeyond” para hacer un rompecabezas o dos, leer un libro de cuentos-insecto temático, o jugar en la colmena gigante.

  1. Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody
    who really understands what they are discussing over the internet.
    You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular given that you surely
    have the gift.
