Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure 3-D

January 6–May 26

Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure explores the lives of an Old World praying mantis and a beautiful butterfly, known by their Latin names, Hierodula and Papilio. They live in the foliage around an abandoned shack on the edge of the river in the Borneo rainforest. Here, we witness them mature and grow. Hierodula develops by incomplete metamorphosis; emerging from his egg as a mini-mantis and shedding his skin regularly on the way to gaining his adult wings. Papilio goes through a complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to butterfly via the pupal stage. As they develop we meet a fascinating array of creatures who share their habitat.
