Como Park Zoo – Butterflies!

So here’s the famous butterfly encounter at the Como Zoo.  Watch the video (by clicking it anywhere) and you might get a chance to hear Hannah giggle or even see her in action!  I apologize for the quality, as I was too busy trying to not step on butterflies than to actually watch the video.

The whole experience is very similar to one Kimberly and I had on San Marteen.  There’s a butterfly farm there (which gets wiped out by hurricanes every decade or so) a lot like this one, only slightly bigger.  The only real difference was that we got to see butterflies in chrysalis, and some even in cacoons.

It’s sad that butterflies have become so rare, but if you want to see some monarchs in your garden plant milkweed!  Go to the following websites to learn more about how you can attract butterflies to your gardens, even get free seeds!
