(New Orleans, La.)- It's a beetle invasion at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium!
Beetlemania invades New Orleans at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium on Saturday, September 6, 2014 and Sunday, September 7, 2014.
There are 12,000 different kinds of beetles in the United States and over 400,000 species in the world. In fact, one out of every four animal species is a beetle!
Visitors to the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium will be welcomed in the lobby by special pinned beetle "look-alikes,"displayed with guitars to look like John, Paul, George and Ringo. Children are invited to learn how to pin a beetle and are welcome to take the mounted insect home as a souvenir.
Beetle-themed activities include beetle races and presentation areas featuring amazing native and exotic beetles. "Beetle juice" and chocolate "chirp" cookies will be served in Bug Appétit.
Be sure to catch this opportunity to learn about The Fab Four hundred thousand species of beetles!
