Davao Butterfly House is located in the same area as the Crocodile Park. It is just 6 month old and still increasing it's resident population. Not that the butterflies are slackers in THAT area. The House must be doing fine in terms of giving it's residents the full comforts. There are a lot of nectar-filled flowers to suit the needs of every single species and there's enough feeding dishes that contains their favorite treats.

You have to go there early in the day so you can watch the butterflies hatch. An amazing sight. The young man who guided us through the House pointed out the different species, most of which is native to Davao and some imported from Palawan.

You can also walk through the orchard attached to the Butterfly House and check out the ranks of alien-like dragonfruit plants. If you get there early enough (8am), you can see the flowers of these plants in glory (they bloom at nights). They have a specie of mango that I've never seen before. If you ask the caretakers nice enough, maybe you can nosh on some fruits.
