Fun & games for the whole family! We’re breaking out the bugs and letting you see them UP CLOSE at the best place to bug out before school starts – The El Paso Zoo! Bring your camera for pictures with Insect Man, then stop by to see huge, hissing Madagascar Cockroaches or Emperor Scorpions, or even some squirmy worms. Kids can get up-close to tarantulas and other spiders. There will be the all-time favorite “Bug Races,” along with a life-size maze for your kids to explore on their own…like little bugs!
