Hundreds of exotic butterflies from all around the world, South America, South East Asia, Philippines, Australia, China, Africa, Malaya and so on!! Among some of the favorites are the iridescent beautiful Blue Morpho butterflies from the rainforests of South America. The giant Atlas Moth (technically not a butterfly!) and friendly Tree Nymph from S.E Asia. Our very own Caribbean Longwings and of course the Monarch! Too many species to mention…sometimes we are lucky enough to have the transparent Glass wings and ghostly White Morpho. The photos. Shown here feature some of the residents you’ll be most likely to see.
In addition to the butterflies, of course, you will also see the caterpillars, many so strange they seem like from another planet. Unlike N. American exhibitions you can actually handle our butterflies and caterpillars; our guides will show you how. The eggs and jewel like chrysalis are also on display. Bird lovers will be pleased to know that Aruba is right next to the bird sanctuary and the St Martin Farm attracts many local species of birds and humming birds right to its doorstep!
