BUGS! Live Animal Show at The Springs Preserve Opens Weekends Starting March 12
—people fear or hate them—but these creatures of nature play an important role in the health of the desert. BUGS! is a live animal show featuring various insects and arachnids that can be found right here in Southern Nevada, and will be conducted by the Springs Preserve in-house staff experts. 

BUGS! Live Animal Show at the Springs Preserve

This show teaches visitors what makes these animals so unique and not something to fear.



See live demonstrations featuring a rotating cast of characters that may include: desert tarantulas, desert hairy scorpions, bark scorpions, banded desert centipedes, giant vinegaroons and hissing cockroaches. Audio and video clips of animals in the wild in real time, and the use of HD cameras let you watch up-close from the comfort of your seat.
