This touring exhibition features six gigantic, robotic insects ranging from 40 to 120 times larger than life size. Watch two 11 ft. male Atlas beetles lock horns in a battle over mates in Asia. Hear the hissing sound of a 22 ft. jungle nymph stick insect rubbing its wings together in self-defense. Forage for plants with a 15 ft. caterpillar in Asia before it morphs into a swallowtail butterfly. Travel with a 12 ft. desert locust as it consumes vegetation across dry regions. Stand in front of a 19 ft. praying mantis while it prepares to lunge at prey with its forelegs.
This exhibition is sure to excite insect lovers of all ages!
