Butterflies and Genetics


How does a caterpillar turn into a butterfly? How can a creatures’ DNA sequence code for two different body plans at the same time? And how does all of this information, coded by billions of letters of DNA, fit inside a single cell?

Come and explore our fabulous Butterfly House, where you will experience butterflies flying, feeding and hatching. They may even land on you to say “hello”. The Botanical Gardens has the only butterfly house in Birmingham, and it is open everyday until September 1st.
