There are plenty of things to see including a hatching area where if you are lucky you can see a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis or the table of rotting fruit which is favoured by some species.

So what is there to see?
You get a few large species including Morpho, Owl Butterfly, some Swallowtails and an Atlas Moth bringing up the moth side of things. Some were quite tatty looking, especially the Eggfly with frayed wings and the like, possibly due to age and that.
In the center was a shed with rows and rows of Chrysalises on poles. I noticed a Monarch or another Danaeus species newly hatched as well as a Sulphur Yellow too. They also had a guy in a shirt holding up an Atlas Moth which is truly huge.
