Grand Cayman Butterfly Farms Guided Tours
You'll find a wealth of information on the butterfly life cycle here. We've learned that females perpetuate the butterfly world, as males spend most of their lives getting drunk on rotten fruit. The males flit about showing off their vivid, beautiful wings, trying to attract the females (who are usually drably coloured in comparison).
The farm also features several species of moths, including the Atlas moth, the largest moth in the world. With a typical wingspan of 36 centimetres (14 in.), it's the size of a small bird.
Guided tours take you through the Butterfly farm. The staff will answer all of your questions -- and then some -- about butterflies.
