The Tropical Rain Forrest was by far my favorite exhibit. It felt as if i was actually in a tropical rain forrest. I loved how the butterflies just would fly by you or even land on you. I found this exhibit appealing due to the fact that there were colorful plants and trees all around me. I also loved the running water, it added a soothing sound to the scenery. I didn't realize that birds were going to be part of the exhibit and really enjoyed seeing all the different types of birds. The exhibit captured my attention because the idea of getting to experience a tropical rain forrest was very exciting, considering I've never seen one. The fresh air, the sounds of birds chirping and running water. It felt as if I was on a tropical island. The exhibit allowed me to see how all different species of butterfly's interact with each other. I noticed that sometimes a small group of butterflies in the same species would fly around as if they were playing with each other. I also got to witness the interaction of different bird species in such an enclosed area. I got to experience behaviors no book could show me. What I found most enjoyable was the way the exhibit made me feel. I felt relaxed and so happy that there were hundreds of butterflies surrounding me. I forgot I was even there for school!
