Butterflies

More than 10 species of butterflies from tropical areas all over the world fly free inside our Butterfly house. As their lifespan is only 2-4 weeks you will be able to find new species each visit. Many of the butterfly species reproduce in the park itself, so besides butterflies you can observe all the stages of their fascinating biological cycle as eggs and caterpillars, and other behavior such as their courtship flights and mating. The butterflies that fly at the park, travel here as pupa or chrysalis, as at this is stage of development it is easier to transport them during this life cycle. 

You can come and admire our tropical butterflies and moths 6 days a week. We have created a natural environment for them to live in where the temperature is always 25-35 degrees and moisture is about 80%. Our butterflies are from Panama, Ecuador and Philippines. Moths are mostly from Europe, America and Asia. We order our butterflies from different breeders around Europe, we do not capture the butterflies ourselves. None of our species is endangered. Some of the species have become to breed on their own in our butterfly house. Here is a small list of butterflies we do have.

The Emperor Butterfly

The Luna moth

Actias Luna

Wingspan of a Luna moth is about 11-12 cm. Their total lifespan is about 55-70 days. This moth lives mostly in America. Caterpillars feed on Birch and the adult moth doesn´t eat anything at all because they do not have mouths.

Attacus Atlas

Atlas moth

Attacus Atlas

Wingspan of an atlas moth is about 25-30 cm. It´s the largest moth in the world. They live mostly in different parts of Asia. Caterpillars mainly feed on citrus plants. The adults do not eat because they do not have moths.

Plants

At the Butterfly House, plants and butterflies both share the limelight, with their beauty and importance. They feed and reproduce in harmony. Each species of butterfly needs a specific plant to lay their eggs on, which is the plant they eat as caterpillars, called the host plant. This relationship between plants and butterflies is the result of millions of years of evolution. We have carefully selected our plants to meet the needs of our butterflies, we have host plants for caterpillars and nectar plants for adult butterflies. Not all butterflies feed on flower nectar so we also have fruit bowls in the garden for those species who love fruit nectar. 

The Butterfly Park’s environmental conditions are ideal for our butterflies, but so are other undesirable inhabitants in any garden: pests. We can not fight them using insecticides, even biological therefore affect butterflies, that´s why we do it through biological struggle that involves using natural enemies of pests to control. The effectiveness of biological control is based on the specific pest-controller it only survives as his target species (pest) is present.

The Emperor Butterfly

Banana

Musa

Banana plants are from the tropical regions of South-East Asia. Bananas are often mistakenly called fruit because people think they are trees, when in fact it is an herbaceous plant. Banana plant can grow upto 6-15m high and the banana leaf surface can be upto a square meter.

Most species have round or elongated edible fruit from two to eight inches long and an inch to two inches across, depending upon the species or cultivar. Passion flowers mainly grow in tropical areas such as South- and North-America, Asia and Australia.

They are native to warm temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is the national flower of Malaysia. Member species are renowned for their large, showy flowers and those species are commonly known simply as "hibiscus", or less widely known as rose mallow.

The flowers are large, conspicuous, trumpet-shaped, with five or more petals, colour from white to pink, red, orange, peach, yellow or purple, and from 4–18 cm broad. They bloom almost all year round, but one flower only blooms for one day.
