New butterfly paradise Amazonica

In our new tropical butterfly paradise Amazonica (May, 2013) over thousand of gay-coloured butterflies are flying about! In this Amazone area (over 2.000 sq.m.) in a huge dome shaped building you are walking along the river banks with tropical plantation and sweet smelling flowers. Besides the many hovering butterflies you also meet many other animals such as yellow anacondas, pecular matamatas (noteworthy turtles), rare Arrau turtles, pacus, redtail catfish, huge punkyfish and of late also piranhas.
