2011, 145 pages, color photos throughout. There is a wide range of live insects, arachnids, and other invertebrate species that can be maintained and exhibited in museums, zoos, nature centers, or classrooms. Even hobbyists can enjoy setting up their own private Insect Zoo!
From butterflies and beetles to scorpions and slugs, there are plenty of spineless wonders that are just as interesting in beauty, shape, and behavior as the larger popular megafauna more commonly used in exhibits. Orin McMonigle has displayed numerous invertebrates since the early ’90s, and offers a wealth of experience and practical advice for those who would like to incorporate these fascinating invertebrates into their exhibits. Husbandry, display, and breeding advice is accompanied by numerous full color images of these species in various stages of their life cycles.
