HOUSTON The Houston Zoo has an exciting new exhibit - Extreme Bugs - opening May 24, 2014 that promises fun for the whole family. So, pack the car and head down to the Houston Zoo on Memorial Day weekend for some creepy-crawly fun!

The Extreme Bugs exhibit delivers an adventure for all ages. Attendees are surrounded with giant animatronic insects that move, spread their wings and even spray you with water! The gigantic crawlers are up to 60 times larger than the normal size, though they're designed as exact (though larger) replicas of the bugs themselves. Don't forget to bring your camera to snap memorable photos to share with family and friends -- this isn't an exhibit you'll want to miss.

The Extreme Bugs exhibit includes the following insect models:

- Black ants
- Blue-eyed darner dragonfly
- Bombardier beetle
- Emperor scorpion
- Praying mantis
- Grasshopper
- Madagascan sunset moth
- Orb web spider
- Stag beetle
- Say s firefly
- Red-tailed bumble bee
- Spotted ladybird
- Mexican red knee tarantula
