Bugs. BIG BUGS!



Something is buzzing at the Phoenix Zoo. And it’s big. Really big.
The Zoo’s latest can’t-miss animatronic exhibit.  Twenty-one gigantic bugs that you really need to see to believe, encounters with real live bugs and tons of activities for the entire family.

Beautifully detailed, the bugs are made from a combination of steel, fiberglass and skin material made from a special urethane compound that protects them against sun, rain and snow, making them perfect to display in their natural environment. Like our dinosaurs, the realistic movements on our bugs are powered by a pneumatic system that enables smoother and finer movements.
