Tiny creatures, big personalities!
Join our knowledgeable keepers and experience a world where tiny creatures rule! Inspect (and maybe even hold!) our fascinating stick insects and learn about how important they are in keeping our ecosystems healthy.
Whether you’re young, old, an insect-lover or not-so-sure about creepy crawlies, we’ll teach you how to appreciate these unique animals and how to become an insect inspector at home!
Highlights of this experience
- Meet our stick insects and other incredible creatures in the ‘Envirodome’
- Hear from keepers about their unique abilities and role in our ecosystem
Female Titan Stick-Insects can lay up to 2000 eggs during their lifetime! Stick insect babies then hatch amongst the mulch and leaf litter with the help of ants, who previously carried the eggs to the safety of their nest to consume the tasty outer part.
