        Arthropod Adaptations: Inside the Insect Zoo | Smithsonian Science How

        Explore the lives of insects and other arthropods. Meet Dan Babbitt, former Manager of the O. Orkin Insect Zoo and Butterfly Pavilion at the National Museum of Natural History. Join him in looking at insect adaptations in a new light, considering how they eat, how they move, and how they grow. See the characteristics of each species that help keep it alive in tough conditions. Probe into the mysteries of insect life and death cycles and consider why a cockroach is a good parent. Face aversions to insects and spiders by seeing through Dan's eyes how fascinating and unique they are.
