Starting in July, we will be launching our Clark Bug Zoo! The purpose is to educate kids on some really cool bugs they do not get to see everyday. The Bug Zoo currently includes:
- Estrella, my sweet Curly Hair Tarantula
- Dude, California's native tarantula
- Nuke, an Arizona Hairy Desert Scorpion
- 2 Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches
- 2 Bumble Bee Millipedes
- Emperor Scorpion
- Giant African Millipede
We are hoping to expand the zoo with possibly a Praying Mantis and more.
The program consists of talking about each insect they will get to meet, facts and more. Next we will head over to the tables set up with our fascinating zoo inhabitants along with handling demo of the roaches (I will be handling not the children) and talk about each one. This is a FREE service provided by Clark! I will continue to update any new insects we add.
