Legs first, head first, or abdomen first? Get to ‘race’ with your friend or family in this interactive game as you find out more on how the soft-bodied and flexible caterpillar moves!
In the adult stage, what are the roles of a butterfly’s spiky leg and scaly wings? Located within our research pod, get to observe and get a truly up-close view of real butterflies under a microscope!
Try out for yourself and see how a butterfly ‘shimmers’ as you alter the angle of light that is shining on it. Some butterflies express a phenomenon called iridescence. How can this help in its survival out in the wild?
Live Butterfly Enclosure
Step into Singapore’s first and only indoor butterfly enclosure, where both humidity and temperature are carefully regulated to ensure that both plants and butterflies, sharing a close-knitted relationship, do well. Over here, you will get to come face-to-face with hundreds of butterflies of at least 16 species from Singapore and around the region. Marvel at the majestic Rice Paper butterfly as it flutter fashionably past you, witness the butterflies sipping their meals, and observe at close range and try to tell the various birdwing butterflies apart from each other.
