Butterfly

Denver has a Butterfly Pavilion. They ship farmed chrysalises from foreign, and when they hatch, the butterflies are released into the greenhouse, where they die. I suppose this is probably how most butterfly pavilions operate, but it did seem a bit like the greenhouse was the pet that was being fed by butterflies.

eeep! The band of big furry spiders at the Butterfly Pavilion seem to thrive rather better than the butterflies. The zookeeper said this one was about 15 years old...
