Get up-close to the fascinating world of creatures

Kids crawl into the Discovery Log into a world of bugs, coming "eye to eyes" with insects and other critters. Learning how these small (and sometimes not so small) creatures interact and shape the world around them is all part of the fun.

What's that you hear? It's cheers coming from the mealworm raceway! Join in the excitement by racing a mealworm to a photo-finish. To learn more about unique and fantastic animals, don't miss a trip to the Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse, where birds, chameleons and butterflies all roam freely, and lizards, frogs, bugs and even a tarantula can all be observed up close.

When you're done, you're just a small scuttle away from the Garden of Fun or from the thousands of breathtaking blooms spread throughout the outdoor gardens.
