The Tropical Butterfly Garden in the Füvészkert can be visited again. Opening hours: 9:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.
Its main attractions are the exotic butterflies native to Central and South America, which travel a long way to reach Szeged. The animals are bred on butterfly farms in Costa Rica. Pupae that arrive by air continue to develop in the butterfly garden's pupa cabinet. After 1-3 weeks, the butterflies emerge from the pupae fixed with insect needles, and in a few hours they pump up their wings with body fluid and fly into the open space of the foil tent. The environment consisting of exotic plants is their ideal habitat, where they can move freely.
Up to a dozen butterfly species can be observed at the same time. Most of them are especially active in sunny weather, preferring to rest with folded wings on the leaves and branches of plants in darker weather.
