Butterflies are amongst natures most beautiful and delicate creatures.
At Butterfly World Coombs we provide a contained facility designed to replicate the natural environment of it's residents that hail from South America and Asia. Our greenhouse features densely planted tropical host plants, as well as a pond housing Japanese Koi, that provides essential moisture to the environment. Strolling along the path through the greenhouse you will find an Emerging Area filled with Pupa's in the Chrysalis stage.
Watch a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis to transform from a clumsy insect into a flying jewel of brilliant colour. Check out the eggs of the butterfly or watch the caterpillars devour a plant before your eyes... you can actually hear them as they munch away. They double their weight daily!
They're everywhere, all sizes, shapes and colours ranging from the Giant Atlas Moth (10" wing span) to the tiny Red Periot Butterfly (1/2" wing span). As they fly from flower to flower, they sometimes mistake people for flowers and rest on their shoulders, heads and arms searching for nectar.
