Papiliorama - Papiliorama Hall (Pool)

The pool at the bottom of the hill inside the Papiliorama Hall in the Papiliorama. This pool houses giant gouramis (Osphronemus goramy) including the individual named “Johan”, the only animal to survive the 1995 fire in the original Papiliorama. A few other fish species can also be seen. The Papiliorama Hall is a large tropical hall teeming with lush plants and built on an artificial hillside. It is 40 meters in diameter and 14 meters tall. The visitor pathway is well laid out and takes you through narrow and winding paths through the dense vegetation. The main attraction in here is the multitude of different butterfly species, more than 60 in total from all over the world. Other than the butterflies visitors can also attempt to get a glimpse of four different bird species: Emerald hummingbird (Amazilia amazilia), sparkling violetear (Colibri coruscans), red-legged honeycreeper (Cyanerpes cyaneus) and Asian blue quail (Coturnix chinensis).
