HITCH –HIKING BUTTERFLY ALERT In accordance with our approved guidelines with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), our facility must be extremely cautious of butterflies leaving the conservatory area. Our staff and volunteers strive to reduce the number of incidents. We encourage your assistance in the following areas: Before Leaving Your Vehicle Grab your camera to remember your day’s exploration.  Tri-pods and very large camera bags can be used only during Shutterbugs on the First Saturday and Monday of each month. Provide link here for this activity.  If there are items you will need, we ask that you leave your camera bag with the staff at the admissions desk. You may exit as often as necessary. Strollers, Baby Carriers & Diaper Bags  Due to the smallness of our conservatory, we ask that all strollers, baby carriers and diaper bags remain in your vehicle.  If you chose to bring them in, you may park them within our lobby. If you are in need of an item in your diaper bag, you may step out of the conservatory, use your item then return to the conservatory. Gum, Food & Drinks  Water is acceptable – Please no baby snacks or bottles filled with milk or juice inside the conservatory.  Small ice cream and snack items from the gift shop can be enjoyed in the lobby.  During the summer months the patio as well as the Sertoma Park pavilion is ideal locations to eat a picnic lunch or large snack.  During the winter or on cold blustery days, we encourage you to ask permission at the admission desk before using our lobby tables or classroom facility. Upon occasions large groups are scheduled, causing you to perhaps have a bad experience while visiting.  Please no gum – Some individuals often find other ways of disposing of this item while in the conservatory. Please dispose of your gum prior to going inside the conservatory. Purses & Hats & Outer Garments  Purses should be zipped closed prior to entering the conservatory.  ALL Hats Including: Baseball, cowboy, stocking caps and those from the Red Hat groups should remain inside your vehicle or in the lobby. Butterflies absolutely love the smell of a hat that has been worn many times. To help with reducing the number of butterflies escaping from the conservatory, we encourage your assistance.  All coats, jackets and sweat coats can be hung in our lobby prior to entering the conservatory. Our yearly temperature is between 80 – 85 degrees while our humidity is between 65 – 70 percent. The range is geared to keep you as comfortable as possible. Please understand that the butterflies would prefer 90 degrees and 90 % humidity. Handicapped Accessible & Wheelchair Use  Our entire facility is handicapped accessible for your convenience.  We have three wheelchairs which may be borrowed; Inquire at the Admission Desk.  Items such as blankets and coats should remain within our lobby area.  Pathways within the conservatory have a very slight incline/decline. o Please apply the brake when at rest.  We encourage that only adults assist individuals with wheelchairs.  When exiting the conservatory a staff or volunteer will assist you. o We carefully check underneath and around all chairs to make certain that no butterflies are hitching a ride. If there is a bag or basket attached to the chair, we prefer that it is closed prior to entering the conservatory. Thank you for assistance.

In Spanish: "Cuatro Espejos" (four mirrors) However, there are a few of Madagascar's 100,000 insect species that warrant special mention: Madagascar Hissing Cockroach. When under threat, it ejects air out of holes on the side of its body, making a loud hissing noise and buying it some time to escape. It also hisses to protect its territory (the male) or during courtship. Giraffe Beetle, looks like a regular beetle body should, but then it has a long thin neck with the head at the end.
