New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
For this special exhibit, you’ll walk into a backyard unlike any you’ve seen before – this backyard is filled with giant, animatronic bugs that move, spread their wings, and even spray you with water! These bugs are up to 200 times larger than the normal size, and are made to look exactly like their smaller counterparts.
Per Person – $2.95
(Zoo admission not included)
Children under 2 are FREE
Purchase tickets at any ticket window when you arrive. Extreme Bugs! Tickets you purchase online today are good for entry to the exhibit on any day. (Zoo admission tickets are dated).
Your bug-filled adventure doesn’t end with your journey through Extreme Bugs! Be sure to check out our all-new Bug House, featuring hundreds of real bugs that you can see up-close. Get a glimpse into the wild world of leaf cutter ants, learn how much the insanely strong Hercules beetle can lift, and see exactly how many legs the Texas giant centipede really has (hint: it’s not 100).
Did you know there are 1.5 billion insects for every human on earth? Bugs are important, and they do lots of jobs that we wouldn’t even want to think about doing, including getting rid of waste and making sure we’ve got maple syrup for our pancakes. That’s right, maple syrup! If we didn’t have bugs to pollinate the maple trees and thousands of other important plants, we’d be out of luck.
