BIG BUG EXPO RIVONIA, SANDTON 11th October TO 10th November 2019

A new exhibit The Big Bug Expo making its first appearance in South Africa at Rivonia Central, featuring the amazing behaviors and extreme characteristics of some of the earth’s most fascinating creatures—insects.

The Big Bug Expo, which will open on the 11th Oct to 10th Nov 2019, features giant, moving, hissing, clicking insects from different parts of the world. Imagine this: a 9m -long wiggling centipede, a 4m -long blood-sucking bed bug, a 6m long hissing pink orchid mantis.

The Big Bug Expo blends technology, science, artistry and imagination to capture the most unusual aspects of the insect world. Various animatronic insects such as, over sized monarch butterfly to a gigantic Madagascar hissing cockroach, the exaggerated size of these creatures shines a creative spotlight on what makes them “extreme.”

“Not only are these enormous animatronic insects such fun to examine up close, but we can also learn a lot about their importance in our ecosystem, extreme behaviors and the physical characteristics that allow bugs to thrive and survive,” said the exhibition producer. David Huni.

School kids and families will experience a bug’s-eye view of their world, explore critter calls, ride a bug train, and participate in. A variety of live insects will be on view for close-up inspection in the adjacent Butterflies! exhibit and the Outside In children’s education center. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm, educators will give short insect talks and answer questions. Microscope and live insects for kids educational activities will be available.
