Lepidoptera, typically in a large walk-through immersion exhibit enclosed in glass or screening, such as the Cockerell B utterfly Ho use in Hous ton, Texas. S ome facilities are combinations of both insect zoos and butterfly houses. Year-round walk-through butterfly houses vary in size. The Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House in Chesterfield, Missouri, covers 511 square meters, whereas the Penang Butterfly House in Penang, Malaysia, is much larger (1474 m2). Seasonal exhibits are generally smaller. A few facilities, such as the insectarium at the Tama Zoo in Japan, display grasshoppers and aquatic species in walk-through immersion exhibits more typical of butterfly houses.
