The Assiniboine Park Zoo is thrilled to announce the debut of a new attraction coming to the Zoo for a limited time only this summer. Xtreme BUGS presented by Artis REIT will feature 19 giant, animatronic bugs along the forested trail inside the Zoo. Included with regular Zoo admission, the exhibit will transport visitors into a vivid, dynamic, and awe-inspiring new environment where they can experience how the world would appear from a bug’s eye view. Immersed in the larger-than-life landscape of Xtreme BUGS, visitors will be surrounded by giant, animatronic insects including a 21 foot Japanese hornet and a 13 foot praying mantis, for an up-close look at the physical characteristics of bugs and the science behind the behaviours of these (usually) tiny creatures that share our ecosystem. Interpretive components of the exhibit will help visitors understand the science behind insect appearance, behaviour, and survival and the important role that bugs play in our everyday environment. By exploring the way bugs look and behave as they do, Xtreme BUGS will invite a new perspective of these interesting creatures.
See Xtreme BUGS at Assiniboine Park Zoo from late May to October. Opening date to be announced in early May.
