The Insectarium showcases insects whose survival depends on the community, and on the clearly defined role of each individual.
Atta ants are among the species that have attained the highest level of social organization in the animal kingdom.
In this exhibition, you will learn that insects live everywhere and you will learn how their many shapes and colours let them eat, hide, defend themselves and find a mate. You’ll also see how insects play many roles essential for the survival of humankind.
