A leafy tropical environment is simulated inside large greenhouses. There are numerous free flying butterflies, a few free flying birds, a pool containing fish, and running water. There are also insects and spiders living in glass displays.
Stratford Butterfly Farm consists of three main areas:
Caterpillar Room which houses caterpillars, pupaes, eggs and specialist plants for butterfly breeding. This is the large walk through glasshouse.
Insect City houses the more exotic insects, such as beetles, praying mantis, stick insects and giant millipedes. The insects are all behind glass and above your head is a glass confinement of leaf cutter ants. A section in insect city is called 'mini beast' and has snails and crabs.
Arachnoland houses over 15 species of spider from black widows to tarantulas. They also have the world's largest spider species, the Goliath birdeater. Arachnoland also includes a collection of scorpions including Imperial Scorpions that glow in the dark. Once again these are all behind glass.
