Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park is one of the city’s most popular animal parks, housing over 6,000 butterflies from 120 species within its landscaped garden setting. Spanning almost 7500 square metres, it is widely regarded as one of the largest butterfly houses in Southeast Asia. These butterflies often stay relatively still on visitors’ hands and clothing, delighting photography enthusiasts and animal lovers alike.
The park is also home to a number of exotic flowers, butterfly-host plants, and ferns as well as Japanese koi fish, fresh water turtles, rhinoceros beetles, and praying mantises. There’s also a nursery within the enclosure, where hundreds of butterfly cocoons are displayed – you might even be able to spot a butterfly larvae emerging from its cocoon.
