Advertisement I recently went to the Victoria Bug Zoo in Victoria, British Colombia, Canada. On the way home I lost my SD card to my camera with the photos, so here is the text I have to offer: It was a small-ish building with an excellent selection of 'bugs' of all sorts. There was a heavy selection of stick insect species, but I liked that. The spider and tarantula world was well represented. They also had giant katydid species and giant cricket species on display. All of the displays were very easy to approach and view from 3 sides, so nothing could hide from you really. The staff was fairly informative to the average Joe, but not so interested in in-depth discussions with a more educated hobbiest. In thier defense they did have alot going on at the time and I did not want to press the issue. There is a gift shop with an amazing selection of bug-fun, goodies, and educational materials. Overall I would recommend it as one of the top bug "places" in the north American continent (top 10). Admission was inexpensive, employees had a sense of humor, aquatic bugs were interesting. Centipedes were very nice. One roach enclosure looked to be a little too dry for too long, and one tarantula seemed to be housed in a low, flat container instead of something upright (Poecilotheria sp.). Otherwise well worth the visit if you are in the area. Three thumbs up.
