Bug Zoo

When I bought my $12 ticket I was told, "Daisy is giving currently giving a tour, feel free to join in. You'll learn a lot that way". It would have been easy to dismiss this pierced and tattooed young lady at first glance. But stopping to listen I quickly realized not only is she passionate and knowledgeable about the Victoria Bug Zoo's critters, she had a lot of hands on experience caring for scorpions etc as pets.
It was fascinating to hear about the differences between the massive millipedes (they walk by peristalsis) and centipedes (their venom causes victims days of excruciating pain).
Just like Miniature World, if you resist the temptation to rush through, there is a lot to see in a small space. Try to count the walking sticks in this photo.
