The largest butterfly attraction on the Nature Coast, Homosassa Butterfly aims to educate and entertain guests, providing an unforgettable, butterfly-based experience. Depending on the time of year, between 10 and 30 North American species can be found flitting about the flowers and plants of the 2,500-square-foot garden, guzzling nectar and holding dance offs. An educational center screens movies about butterflies in a small theater, and also contains numerous pinned displays and exhibits about the lifecycle and behavior of the butterfly. Visitors can watch maturation in action at the chrysalis exhibit, a display case full of caterpillars desperately trying to turn into beautiful butterflies before their next high-school reunion shames them once again.
An Examiner.com reviewer featured Homosassa Butterfly:
- The whole experience is a real treat for boys, girls, Moms, Dads, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and even Grandparents; everyone will love this excursion. – Candice Collins
