Bug Exhibit at the Heard Museum

6 Apr

From www.heardmuseum.org:

Scientifically – kingdom: Animalia, phylum: Arthropoda.

Commonly Bugs, insects, ick!

To the Heard spineless wonders

Through May 15, 2011, The Heard Museum in McKinney is pleased to present BUGS, featuring more than twenty-five species of invertebrates including ants, scorpions, mantises and dozens of others from the world of itsy-bitsy, creepy-crawly and sluggy-buggy. BUGS is truly a “bug zoo” showcasing live arthropods both native and exotic. Staged in Mayan Ruins, this exhibit perfectly highlights the particular influence of bugs on human culture. Whether you love bugs or hate them, you’ll find these creatures fascinating. Investigate what you have heard about the invertebrate world by exploring such creatures as giant beetles, checkered cockroaches and enormous stick insects.

Being spineless has never been so cool!

Animal “Bug” care and docent opportunities are available.
