Notice: The Leafcutter exhibit will be undergoing maintenance from August 25-31, 2021.
These amazing invertebrates are the newest permanent exhibit at the Butterfly Biosphere! Visit our colony of 65,000 female leafcutter ants and watch their amazing farming process. Leaf fragments are carried into the nest and an assembly line of ants cuts them into smaller pieces, mulches them into pellets, then fertilizes and arranges the pellets into piles, and finally plants strands of fungus onto them to encourage new growth. Colonies this size are only successful because they work together. Guests entering the Butterfly Biosphere will be able to immerse themselves in the lives and work of these amazing ants.
