Creepy crawlies take the focus of this temporary exhibition. See water beetles, millipedes, a praying mantis and other real bugs along with more than 20 custom animatronics -- such as a 16-foot-long Japanese hornet and a giant hissing cockroach. Activities include a dig box, zoo chats, crafts and a bug "petting" zoo; on the weekends, don't miss roach races and tastings of chef-created treats featuring bugs as the main ingredient.

The zoo is open until 6 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 7:30 p.m. Sundays.
