Insectarium

(The RainForest)

Insects greatly outnumber all other animals in the world's rain forests. On the lower level, across the path from the tropical rain storm, the insect exhibits feature leaf-cutter ants, dead-leaf mantids, hissing cockroaches, and several other species.

The interactive display of leaf-cutter ants is equipped with a video camera system that magnifies the ants on adjacent video screens. Visitors can control and operate the moveable camera to gain the best view of the busy ant colony.
