Zookeepers try to spot the ladybirds
Friday 25 June 2010
Zookeeper Ellie Stringer takes part in the UK Ladybird Survey as part of ZSL London Zoo’s National Insect Week 2010 celebrations.
Visitors to ZSL London Zoo have been searching around the grounds to identify any that they can find – whilst keeping an eye out for unwelcome invasive varieties such as the Harlequin ladybird.
The best place to celebrate National Insect Week 2010 is in the Zoo’s B.U.G.S exhibit.
Guests can admire over 50 different insect species and check out the daily Megabugs encounter where they have the chance to get up close and personal with some of the world’s largest creepy-crawlies, including giant millipedes and praying mantis.
