Butterfly House at the Tulsa Fair

There is a vending area with caterpillars to take home in cute containers, complete with caterpillar food. The tropical butterflies are huge, beautiful and fearless pacifists.
Inside the house, the butterflies were glad to land on hands - butterflies love perspiration.

Look at them on the netting!

The advertising says 5,000 butterflies in the house. I didn't count but the children found plenty to amuse themselves with. I'm going to meet with the owner after the fair ends. He has ideas for our Muskogee butterfly exhibit.

The wonder in this child's face is what we are looking forward to at ours.
