Because Bugfest no longer believes in using reptiles, we have extended the range of invertebrates. Insects do not have complex central nervous systems like mammals and reptiles and fare much better when being transported around. We are in the process of adding new and amazing creepy crawlies for your school visit and birthday party lineups – we aim to provide more than anyone else and are scouring the corners of the UK to find as many captive-bred specimens as possible. Where certain more exotic and harder to find species are concerned, every effort is made to captive rear them to reduce future impact in the wild.
