Former Mr Bug owner Matt commented: “I’ve enjoyed meeting so many kids and teachers over the years, and introducing them to my animals. I’ve known Rebecca for ages, and she’s just as passionate about wildlife as I am. I can heartily recommend her shows.” Sessions concentrate on giving each audience member the chance to get as close as possible to the animals involved – whether being held or watched, a close view allows the natural beauty of animals to be seen.
In November 2014 Animates took over the Mr Bug business, and a collection of interesting creepy crawlies joined the Animates stable! These include the Giant African Land Snails, Train Millipedes, Madagascan Giant Hissing Cockroaches, Imperial Scorpion and Eric the Royal Python.
