Weird and wonderful….

 

It wasn’t all pretty little butterflies at Magic Wings.

There were also more than enough weirdos to keep a girl happy.

Like this guy.

And more specifically, this one…..

Oh, yes I did.

And he really lived up to his name. When he’s walking up your arm? You can really feel the pricks.

On his legs, people.

His legs.

Moving on with the weird….

Butterflies that look like dead leaves?

A Columbian Tegu named Porkchop?

Check.

There was even a weird and wonderful butterfly nursery.

With a delightful Silence of the Lambs feel, no?

The flora was as unique as the fauna.

With some interesting exotic blooms.

These looked rather Seussian.

Truffula tree anyone?

But by far, one of the most beautiful creatures was this:

Emerging from his (her?) cocoon.

Amen Steven.

I honestly couldn’t stop staring at it.

I mean… look at it!

But okay, it was 110 degrees in there… and the husband had been patiently melting into a puddle for the past few hours while I took the required 3,496 photographs, so we starting making our way to the door.

Totally enamored with this little jewel of a tourist attraction.

      1. Every time I come across a caterpillar, I always say to myself that it’s the second stage as I’m smearing it on the bottom of my shoe…

        Disclaimer: No, I’ve never really squashed a caterpillar…

  1. Okay, loved the cute, green weird little lizard, but the prickly devil????? No.no.no. He would have been dead prickly devil if he’d come near me and there would have been high pitched, terrifying shrieking and screaming in the garden of eden. Shudder! Mona

  2. Brilliant.Great pictures. We went to a similar place in Tuscon – yours is far better. Although a bit disappointing when I read “But by far, one of the most beautiful creatures was this:” I expected to see my picture….
