BEETLES EXHIBITION NOW OPEN

October 22, 2012

The Beetles exhibition gives audiences the opportunity to immerse themselves in the exhibition as they explore the diversity, beauty and behavior of beetles. With hundreds upon hundreds of beetles on display, visitors will learn fun facts and the significance of various species.

For example, did you know that:

• the dung beetle removes 80 percent of all cattle droppings in parts of Texas,

• the Hercules beetle is capable of supporting 850 times its weight making it the strongest animal on earth and

• ladybugs are considered by many an omen of good luck?

Also included in the exhibition is a special display of beetle artwork created by local artist and author Steve Jenkins.
