Spend a moment in our Butterfly Rainforest with Ryan talking about how butterflies taste. Specifically, how they sense potential host plants and other things in their surroundings. Although they do have taste receptors in their proboscis and antennae, most of their sense of taste is centered elsewhere.
Here in the exhibit, butterflies often land on visitors and they can probably taste you!
