The Butterfly Jungle from Uncle Milton gives children an unprecedented view into the magical transformation known as metamorphosis. Children can watch as the beautiful creatures arrive as caterpillars, wrap themselves up into chrysalids, and transform into amazing adult painted lady butterflies. Once the habitat is assembled, the whole family will enjoy observing the butterflies’ progress through metamorphosis. Older children can even use the kit as a starting point for the school science fair.
Unlike some other butterfly habitats on the market, the Butterfly Jungle provides a scenic habitat representative of their natural surroundings. Using the series of die-cut pieces, kids will begin creating the live butterfly habitat by assembling an immersive 3D jungle in which the butterflies can roam. Jungle backdrop pieces include palm leaves, a jungle background, a jungle floor, and several jungle layers that give the habitat a lush and wild appearance. Once the butterflies are introduced to their new habitat, they will feel right at home.
A uniquely designed clear cylinder enclosure provides children with an incredible view of the butterflies no matter where they are in the Butterfly Jungle. Detailed directions are included to properly care for the butterflies throughout each stage of metamorphosis, and kids can even provide them with delicious sugar water and bananas. The included feeding tray makes meal time easy and unobtrusive to the beautiful insects.
