PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Giant insects have landed at the Arizona Science Center!

It's the Science Center's latest featured exhibit. The World of Giant Insects transports you into a bug's life with interactive animatronic critters, along with real living creatures.

You can stand under a giant Desert Locust as it springs to flight, watch as the Chinese Praying Mantis spreads its menacing limbs, or sit alongside a chubby Lime Swallowtail Caterpillar that's munching on veggies.

And, if you've ever wondered what a mosquito's mouth looks like, you'll be able to see it at 400 times its original size.

This exhibition will amaze both adults and children, providing a unique and educational experience for the whole family.

The World of Giant Insects is a production of Kokoro Exhibits, sponsored locally by APS, and is located in Sybil B. Harrington Galleries at the Arizona Science Center through Sept 5, 2016.

Hours: 10am-5pm.

Cost: Adults: $24 Child (3-17): $19 / Members: $4 Groups (15+): $5 per person
