Insect Week!

Dig into the world of these six-legged critters

Keepers Kit, Louise, Viani and Erin

Dig into the world of insects with Keeper Kit as she explores what makes insects unique. Find out about their exoskeletons and how they grow out of them, learn what makes an insect, and discover some great things insects do for the world around them. Don't miss cameos from amazing insects like the Caribbean cave cockroach, bess beetles, velvet ants and darkling beetles. And wait—how did that non-insect, the tarantula, get in here?

This video was created and narrated by Keeper Kit, with additional footage and photography provided by keepers Erin, Louise, and Viani.
