After we finished with that, we decided to squeeze one more adventure into our day: the butterfly garden. The butterflies there were pretty, but also nothing to freak about...but the flowers? Oh myLanta! They were out of this world!
The garden finds cocoons and protects them from the occasional predator until they hatch. It was neat to see the rows and rows of cocoons, and we even got to see a butterfly come out right in front of us. It was pretty neat.
The coolest butterfly there was called the Owl Butterfly (see image below). It uses its wing pattern to scare away predators because it looks like an owl when the wings are opened. But it has another defense too. Notice the right corner of the wing on the image below....does it look like a snake to you? That is its defense when its wings are closed. Neat, huh?
