Visitors can watch the stunning Christmas Butterfly – pictured here – as it flies around the rainforest flight area. Native to Africa, it has an average wingspan of 9-11cm. Also on display in Minibeast Metropolis are two Giant Hooded Katydids, which are native to Papa New Guinea. The specimens on display at the Butterfly Farm have a wingspan of 25cm, and the Farm is the first UK zoo to have them on public display.

The Farm is open daily from 10am to 5pm, every day of the week except Christmas Day. Find out more at www.butterflyfarm.co.uk or call 01789 299288.
