View and Experience Live Tropical Bugs From Around The World
The Victoria Bug Zoo opened its doors in 1997 and has been showing visitors of downtown Victoria our awe-inspiring bugs ever since. A visit to this must-see mini zoo offers an excellent opportunity to view and experience live tropical bugs from around the world. All the animals are alive and in tanks.
Discover roughly 50 fascinating species including giant walking sticks, beautiful praying mantis, glow-in-the-dark scorpions, hairy tarantulas, and Canada’s largest ant colony. Knowledgeable educators will introduce you to the wonderful world of bugs, give a wealth of information about the animals on display, and provide a safe bug handling experience for the more adventurous. No need to be shy, none of our critters are going to hurt you! Don’t forget your camera to document this unique experience!
An Educator is always in the zoo waiting to teach you all about the incredible animals we have.
The displays are ever changing, so come in and be amazed by the extensive collection of invertebrates from around the world any time of the year.
This stop is sure to thrill everyone; from children, adults and bug lovers to even the more skeptical visitors!
