Unlike traditional insect display cases, our butterfly display case has been designed in such a way that visitors can admire the undersides as well as the upper sides of the butterflies’ wings. You can therefore see the occasionally drastic differences between the two sides. Colours range from the drab to the vivid and from the matt to the iridescent, or even translucent, while patterns include everything from lines, bands, and eyespots to blurred shapes.
The butterflies and moths in the display case are also arranged by ecozone (Nearctic, Neotropic, Indomalaya, Australasian, Palaearctic, and Afrotropic).
Take a tour of the display case and marvel at the iridescent blues of the morpho butterflies, at the Atlas moth or the Death’s-head Hawkmoth.
