Big Bugs ‘invade’ Phoenix Zoo

Phoenix Zoo

Now through April 28, something is buzzing at the Phoenix Zoo. And it’s big – big bugs, that is.

The animatronic exhibit features 21 gigantic bugs that need to be seen to be believed. The larger-than-life exhibition showcases the superhero qualities of insects and why they are so important to life on Earth.

Beautifully detailed, the bugs are constructed with a combination of steel, fiberglass and skin material made from a special urethane compound that protects them from sun and rain. Each bug features realistic movements powered by a pneumatic system that enables smoother and finer bug-like maneuvers.
