Bug Championships at The Deep

Date Posted: 30/03/2012

The Deep in Hull will unveil its newest attraction tomorrow, as it welcomes the Bug Championships.

An innovative display featuring a selection of global bug superstars, visiting groups can witness some of the ‘sporting triumphs’ of these creepy crawlies, which originate from countries including Venezuela, the USA and Australia. 

Highlights include the Mega Mantis, an insect so large its prey includes mice; and the Giant Spiny Stick Insect, which can ‘benchpress’ several times its own body weight; as well as the Giant Vinegaroon, the Mombo Assassin Bug, and the Blue Death Feigning Beetle. A host of bug-themed activities will accompany the new exhibition, including a 3D bugs movie, and bug workshops.

Group travel organisers planning a visit for ten or more people can take advantage of discounted prices, fast-track entry, and free coach parking.
