March 21, 2010 (San Pasqual) – Nearly three dozens varieties of exotic butterflies will be on display at the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park butterfly jungle exhibit March 27 through April 18. Walk through the jungle-like exhibit, where butterflies often flutter down to land on visitors. Guests can also meet a “butterfly wrangler”, talk with keepers, see daily releases of butterflies, and view butterflies emerging from pupae.
