Visitors can journey through the butterfly house with the chance to see the butterflies up close to enjoy the amazing colours of these delicate insects.

The location for this exhibit is next to our Cherry crowned mangabey's; just around the corner from the bottom viewing area for 'Bears of the Rising Sun'.
