The National Science Centre staff told us that butterflies can only live for around 14 days. They are caterpillar for 10 - 14 days, then in the pupae for 14 days, and butterflies for 14 days. Thus, their lifespan is very short.

The boys were very happy to have butterflies on their hands. The butterflies here were more tame than the Butterfly Garden and Reptile Sanctuary in Melaka.
There were other animals in their respective enclosures , such as rabbits, birds, tortoise, guinea pigs, etc.
