I've been to the Butterfly World in Key West and thought that if I saw one, I saw them all. But this one is the first one in the Western hemisphere and the largest one in the world! It has 10 different sections where you could see their laboratory, cases of pupae where butterflies emerge from their cocoons, aviaries, a rain forest, gardens, and a plant shop beside their museum and gift shop. Thanks much to Jeanne and Laurie who bought me a year membership so that I can go back whenever I want this winter!
Besides hundreds of butterflies, they have aviaries with hummingbirds and finches, and a place where you can have lorikeets on your shoulders and arms, expecially if you feed them a cupful of nectar! Some of the gardens have exotic flowers, but then there are exotic butterflies and hummingbirds here too! It was a great afternoon and I will be back!
