Kid Review: A Day at Butterfly World

March 13th, 2008  |  by  |  Published in FunBlog, Reviews By Kids

Butterfly World is a place where you can see birds, trees, exotic plants and other interesting things. One Friday, I went to Butterfly World with my grandfather and my sister. This time was a very special time for me because it was my first time going. The first thing we went to was the butterflies (that is the first thing they had). One even landed on me! All you have to do is stay still and one is very likely to land on you.

After that we went to the plant and hummingbird exibit. The plants are very interesting because they are fuzzy and they feel so good on your hand. I could stay there just feeling them for an hour. But I didn’t. As we were walking in the “fuzzy flower” garden, we came to a rose garden. Since my grandfather likes to take pictures, we stayed there for a pretty long time.

As we walked on, we came to the larakeet exibit. To feed the larakeets only costs one dollar. If the larakeet starts to pinch you with its beak, then just ask one of the volenteers to to take the larakeet. Next to the larakeets is a place where you can see different kinds of butterflies. It even tells you if the butterfly is female or male. It also tells you which country it is from.

The next part is the grossest part. It is bug world! It has tarantulas, scorpions, toads, spiders, water bugs,and cockroaches. (You might not want to hear that word.) In the meantime, we went to the bug world and had stayed there a while being grossed out we walked onto a bridge where we saw a gray heron. We also saw some fish that were all kinds of different colors that you can feed.

Next we went to a place where there are parrots. I do not know if you can feed the parrots (I do not think you can) but that does not mean you will not have fun. After that you come into a place where you can see more birds. They have many different kinds of colorful birds such as owl birds, partridges, quail and many other interesting birds.

Next we went to the cafe and then there was a place where there were all kinds of plants; sunflowers, daises, you name it. And then was the best part: THE GIFT SHOP. In the gift shop, there are all kinds of souvenirs and other things such as hats, shirts, and toys. Outside the park (still part of Butterfly World) is a playground and shelter to eat in before or after your day.

Butterfly World is a great place to spend a day with family and friends.
