Various of visitors looking at butterflies STORYLINE: Tourists and locals on the Indonesian island of Bali have been admiring the fragile beauty of nature at the biggest butterfly garden in Southeast Asia. Butterflies are bred and studied at the 35 hectare (86 acre) garden, which was built in 1996. Visitors from all over the world come to the gardens to see the life cycle of the butterfly, from egg, to caterpillar (or larva), to chrysalis (or pupa), to beautiful winged adult. The visitors said they liked the garden because they could see the butterflies up close and watch the different stages of the insects'' metamorphosis. There are 250 butterflies in the garden from 20 different species. Among them are troides helena (birdwing butterfly), popilio polytes (common mormon butterfly) and popilio memnon (swallowtail butterfly). Adult butterflies have a short life span, sometimes living for as little as a week. During this time they can lay up to 200 eggs, but only about 10 percent of these hatch successfully. Every month, staff at the gardens release some of the butterflies back into their natural habitat.
