Did you know that if you lined up one each of all the animals and plants in the world side by side, every fifth specimen would be a beetle — not just an insect, but specifically a beetle? There are approximately 1.5 million separate species of known insects on the planet and there are still millions more that have yet to be found and catalogued. And that doesn’t include all the other critters we also group into the informal category known as “bugs,” to which people add all sorts of other invertebrates including spiders, centipedes, crabs, slugs and even worms, plus all the many relatives of those creatures. Bugs are all around us and they are an integral part of our world, yet most of us know very little about them. So leave the can of bug spray at home, and come and learn about the mind-boggling diversity of bugs at the Museum’s Insect Zoo.
