Between 30 and 40 varieties of butterfly may be seen here in within this mature environment of flowering exotic plants and Citrus trees. The types of butterfly change regularly so there's always something new to spot. Some of the specimens are bred here from pupae, which is also displayed.
Small bridges span the ponds where more of the fish collection, Egyptian Firemouths, Pangasius Sutchi (which usually grow to 3 - 4 inches but here can be seen up to 2 feet long) and Giant Gourami (Osphronemus Goramy) dart about playfully. Also here you will find Koi Carp, 5 spot Cyclids, Talapias, Mud Turtles, Soft Belly Turtles, Collared Teals, Cinnamon Teals and Leafcutter Ants.
