DRAPER, Utah (News4Utah) – A new exhibit opened at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium Friday.

The Butterfly Experience:  An Immersive Journey, features hundreds of butterflies and will educate people about butterflies and their life cycle.

The exhibit features a species called Painted ladies. They are one of the most widespread species worldwide, found across North and Central America. They typically fly south to escape cold weather, migrating to Mexico and warmer areas, but can be found in Utah in the spring and summer.

The Butterfly Experience is found on the lower level of the Journey to South America Gallery at the Aquarium.

The Aquarium plans to add other migratory butterflies to the exhibit in the future. For more information, visit https://thelivingplanet.com/.
