Pupae Area & Emergence Cage

In the aviary there are two cage areas where you will see Ulysses, Cairns Birdwing and Orchard butterfly pupae. We hang the pupa in these cages and when the butterfly emerges it pumps up its wings. When its wings are hard and dry, we open the cage door and you can observe these butterflies taking their first flight.
