Take the chance to peer at all kinds of tiny beasts, from lizards to scorpions and amazing leaf-cutter ants. There are regular sessions where you can handle some of these creatures, including stick insects and snakes, and there's a gift shop on site, offering lots of butterfly and insect-related things.
