MegaBugs are crawling in Science Centre

[Media Invite]

We have tried Escargot before, but something so slimy and hugh as this snail must make Fear Factor contestants squeamish !

Thanks to Winston’s (Dear Xander) invite, we got to rub shoulder with the hairy and eerie stars from the insect domain.

Some came dressed in their insect finest, whereas Daddy and Wei were happy to spot some tattoos. The artist is Good, she can draw everything from six to eight legs !

Imagine 2m long centipedes with their fangs, 1m ants or scorpions with pincers longer than average human limbs ! Our hair is standing already.

No one is singing Incy Wincy spider…

We have heard how Praying Mantis will first decapitate their prey (which includes husband), and then proceed to chew the other body parts into bite size ! With a 3m model behind us, it is easy to understand why Mantis got a fearsome reputation.

Somehow, Daddy is reminded of some science-gone-wrong horror movies, like The Fly.

We understand insects’ life cycle better.

We found an awful lot of Dungs rolled into Giant balls. Boon Wee’s first response is “disgusting” when Daddy told him Dung beetles feast on fresh manure !

Wei pretends to spray baygon at the pest (小强), while Daddy tries to understand why Dung beetle’s job-scope sucks big time 🙁

We heard insects were served as tidbits during the MegaBugs event, but no thanks.

We would like to thanks Science Center for the invite. More event photos are available on our fanpage. If your little ones are curious about prehistoric (GIANT) bugs, drop by BBC’s Prehistoric series here and here.
