Tata zoo in Ranchi breeds butterflies to create awarenessNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:02 am ICT by admin
” We generally plant ornamental plants, but the butterflies do not come in all ornamental plants. As per our research butterfly comes in some special type of plants,” said M.S. Jain, Director, Tata Zoo.
The visitors are very happy to see the butterflies and are even interested in learning about their life cycle.
“I have seen other animals taking birth but I have never seen the life cycle of a butterfly. It feels really nice to come and see all these things here,” said Sumati Kaur, a visitor.
The Zoo has, till now, bred 100 varieties of butterflies and aims to breed even more numbers in the future.(ANI)
