See the amazing lifecycle of a butterfly in action in the Caterpillar Room. Some of the world's largest and most camouflaged caterpillars are on show with cocoons, giant silk moths and shining pupae hanging on the plants. The Butterfly Farm has the largest live insect display in Europe. Observe the fascinating and strange in Insect City where stick insects, beetles and praying mantids.
