A couple weeks ago I visited the Otter and Butterfly sanctuary in Buckfastleigh, Devon. Today I am going to focus on the Butterflies and I have to say it was one of the best experiences for me as you get to walk into a HUGEE greenhouse filled with exotic butterflies and moths.
The house is really warm and filled with plants and flowers for the butterflies and moths to thrive, live and breed just as they would in the wild. You obviously can't touch them as that would be bad for them but they do land on you and you can get up close to them.
You can also see them before they are butterflies in form of caterpillars and larvae. There is also hundred of cocoons of all sizes hanging from trees getting ready to birth a beautiful butterfly or moth :)
Inside the Butterfly house there is also a huge lake for Terrapins and massive Koi carp.
I had the best time, I love being able to be so close and interactive with animals so this was a wonderful experience. I can't wait to show you the Otters too, they were so funny and crazy!
