Mind-bogglingly Big BUGS!

Written by Emma on 25th July 2014

Mind-bogglingly big BUGS! are coming to Chester Zoo this summer and we’re delighted to be partnering with them. Thirteen giant animatronic bugs are to be unveiled as part of the special new event which opens to the public on 13th July 2013.

Featuring large-scale robotic replicas of species such as a scorpion, a ladybird and a 33ft-wide tarantula, BUGS! promises to be one of the most breath-taking exhibits ever seen in a UK zoo.

Thanks to our corporate supporter Lisa Styles at CAS Limited who covered our sponsorship costs, Children Today will sponsor the twelve feet long Blue-eyed Darner dragonfly!

With its amazing wings, our dragonfly is fantastic at flying and has the ability and freedom to fly away and explore new places – at Children Today we give children with disabilities the opportunity to achieve their potential and experience greater freedom, through the provision of specialised equipment.
