Don't miss the leafcutter ants 4 out of 5 stars

It's a fairly short journey round but we had a great time. It's packed with loads of amazing butterflies and insects, including one enormous moth which doesn't look real until you get up close. The highlight though has to be the leafcutter ant room where they carry foliage from one tank to the next, up over your head on a web of rope. So cool!
