A Caterpillar’s Life

Beneath their parents’ colourful wings, butterfly and moth caterpillars are eager to show you that they, too, can be amazing.

Do you remember hunting for caterpillars among the leaves, as a child? Now you can look for some astonishingly diverse caterpillars amidst the tropical plants in the greenhouse. Green, yellow or blue, striped or spotted, covered in wax, hair or spines, caterpillars use all sorts of clever tricks to defend themselves – and impress and surprise you!

Learn about this little-known phase in butterflies’ lives, and share the pleasures of “childhood” with the caterpillars at Butterflies Go Free.
