Insects and Their Relatives

The Butterfly Garden and Insectarium's main hall is swirling with color and motion. Brilliant, large models of prehistoric insects sweep across the ceiling over cleverly crafted habitats populated by the living collection. Realistic murals set a stunning backdrop for guests to learn about insects and their relatives.

Check out the huge leafcutter ant colony, dung beetle exhibit and the amazing camouflaged walking leaf insects!
