This zoo has been in existence since 1952 and is located adjacent to the Botanical Gardens. Being a tropical island, the majority of animals, fish, birds and reptiles exhibited here are tropical species, obtained mainly from Trinidad & Tobago and neighboring South America. Named after the Emperor or Morpho Butterfly which frequented the area, this zoo is located in a natural valley.
Traversing the zoo’s pathway and viewing all the displayed animals is not exhaustive since there are benches which allow for resting periods between viewing. There are also two refreshment areas for snacking and enjoying a cool drink. Since each exhibit has signs explaining everything about its display, a guided tour is not necessary but it can still be arranged if required.
