Some of the best days are the days when your niece comes to visit your bugs... and you, but really the bugs. #cuteness #missoulainsectarium

the newest addition to the Insectarium: frog-legged leaf beetles! These beetles have major sexual dimorphism, meaning the males are much larger than females, with the males having especially larger hind legs. Other beetles that share this large-hind-leg trait use their legs to fight other males for food and access to females, typically battling butt-to-butt to wrestle, kick, and squeeze their opponents. #Sagrafemorata #insectsofinstagram #beetlejuice #beetles #scicomm #frogleggedbeetle #malaysian

I love our budwings so much. They both recently molted and are looking real pretty. Probably the closest I'll come to working with extra terrestrials.

These little lovelies make the best lunch dates. Did you know Missoula had an insect museum? Pop in and visit the butterflies and their other six legged friends anytime between 11a-5p Wednesday through Saturday.

Today was a good day. Much to the delight of the 6 year olds at the museum, Polly our "Goliath Birdeating Tarantula" cooperated and ate a live cockroach, and I was only slightly pinched when handling our thorny devil sticks. #itsthelittlethings #bugslife #Extatosomacalcarata
