We could never decide if the adjacent Butterfly Pavilion was under the mantis's protection, or if it was trying to break in for a tasty bug meal.

This is at the entrance of the Butterfly Pavilion, which is totally worth a stop in itself. It is a small pavilion, but the kids will love the opportunity to see beautiful butterflies literally flying around you at every turn.
