"Hugemongous" cockroaches and secretive underground burrowing bugs and water bugs and bugs you would swear were created by a science fiction writer ...so many kinds of bugs, there's something to fascinate everyone I've ever accompanied to the Insectarium. From age 3 to 83, boys or girls , adventurous or shy, everyone was drawn in by it, even if only to watch someone (like me) eat meal worms and crickets and other tasty stuff ! If they haven't found anything divine and you're nearing the end of this small museum, fear not! Yet to see are sights like iridescent beetles and butterflies of nearly impossible colors mounted in lovely patterns behind glass, and even more of mother earth's amazing palette awaits you through the double doors into the butterfly exhibit. It seems if you sit still & have perfume on, one of these intensely colored gossamer-winged beauties will usually alight on you. It's a restful area and helps quiet down the kids before piling back into the car.
Oh and BERT S.?? You're my kinda Insectarium visitor! T'wouldn't be as much fun going back as often as I have if I didn't get to see what's cooking today!
