Toronto Zoo: Bugzibitz Trip

Top 6: April 4th 2007
It’s March Break at the Toronto Zoo, and that can mean only one thing: bugs! Bugzibitz II, an exhibit featuring hundreds of the world’s most interesting and exotic bugs, returns to the zoo for its second year. The exhibit runs from March 9th to 18th.

This year, to raise awareness of the event, the zoo has hired a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach named Jeb to act as their spokesbug.

"Jeb represents just how exciting bugs really are," says Shanna Young, of the Toronto Zoo. "He’s a good choice for the zoo because he proves to us that the smallest species are sometimes the most interesting."

Interesting indeed. Starring in a short documentary chronicling his adventures from his homeland to the Toronto Zoo, Jeb gives us a glimpse into the glamorous life of a celebrity bug. He also shows us his wilder side in a music video he and his band created specifically for Bugzibitz II.

When asked how he felt about the upcoming event, Jeb proclaimed, “Being a spokesbug rocks! I not only get to represent the zoo, but bugs from all around the world. It’s a big responsibility, but I’m honoured and excited to be a part of it. It’s a pretty big deal.”

Insects in the zoo’s permanent year-round exhibits are also excited about the arrival of Bugzibitz II. Ryan, who is a Giant Baboon Spider from Africa remarked, “Jeb is an inspiration to all bug-kind. If the other bugs coming to the exhibit are even one tenth as interesting as he is, this should be a pretty exciting event.”
