Toledo Zoo’s Butterfly Encounter extended through March 9

The Toledo Zoo’s free-flight butterfly encounter is staying open through Sunday, March 9, 2014 indoors at its Museum of Science. This is a week later than originally scheduled, but wintry weather prompted Zoo leaders to extend the exhibit so more visitors would have an opportunity to experience it.

The butterfly species come from all across the Americas -- including many species that visitors would never have a chance to see otherwise. From the zebra longwing to the bright orange Julia and multicolored white peacock butterfly, it’s an interactive encounter that inspires visitors about the intrigue of the natural world. Details are at toledozoo.org/butterfly.

March 8-9 is also opening weekend for the Zoo’s new Flying Reptiles exhibit at its historic Reptile House. See flying lizards, snakes and more, along with models of prehistoric flying reptiles. These include a life-size replica of Quetzalcoatlus northropi, which stood as tall as a giraffe and had a wingspan of 35 feet. While you’re at the Reptile House, don’t miss Baru, the huge saltwater crocodile brought to Toledo through the support of Block Communications, Inc.

Entry to the butterfly encounter and the Flying Reptiles exhibit is free with regular Zoo admission. Learn more at toledozoo.org/flight.
