When it comes to eating or being eaten, bugs rely on their wide range of adaptations for survival. Many fascinating species of arthropods have become masters of camouflage, mimicry, defense, and more! In other words… you’ll never find a boring bug when you really study their fascinating features!

Investigate how different arthropods have evolved over time to perfectly fit into their environment in this fun and interactive presentation.

Bugs on Wheels: Adaptation Exploration brings a selection of live arthropods from the Cockrell Butterfly Center to your classroom. Audiences of all ages will have a unique opportunity to meet some bugs with some amazing adaptations up close and personal.
