Tuesday- Friday: 1PM- 4PM, Weekends & Holidays: 11AM-4PM Last entry at 3:30PM daily Our tropical Butterfly Encounter is transforming into a winter wonderland for the holiday season. Warm up inside this tropical experience and enjoy the spirit of the season as the blue and white decorations make the experience even more magical than the last time. To add to the magic, we’re introducing two species of magnificent white butterflies; Morpho Polyphemus and Idea leuconoe. Get up close with one of only a few varieties of white morphos and discover Idea leuconoe (Paper Kite). These beautiful butterflies are noted for their slow and very graceful flight, which gives them the appearance of white handkerchiefs floating gently on the breeze. This slow flight is their way of advertising the very distinctive pattern of their wings, which birds associate with a very unpleasant taste. The chrysalises will arrive at the end of November and begin emerging into butterflies early in December
