Very informative, a great little learning experience to have on a rainy day. A bit hard to find but worth it if your are looking for something short to fill an uneventful day.

The presenter clearly has a passion and knowledge for bugs/insects and he was very engaging, easy to listen to and everyone got the opportunity to hold a number of different insects including millipedes, giant snails and stick insects.
The show lasted an hour but hardly felt like it, even with a 4 year old.
Great value for money and would definitely recommend!

Went to this amazing place whilst visiting my grandson for his 3rd birthday. There were only ourselves and one other family on the day and so had a very laid back visit. The guy giving the talk was so knowledgeable which made the visit even more enjoyable. I personally only held the leaf insect, ok I'm chicken, but my son held every one of the bugs even a blooming trantula. I would highly recommend a visit well worth the entrance fee. Would have been good to have seen a snake (no I doubt I would have held one) but I believe that they are at the their zoo which I will definately go to on my next visit.
