Sally-Ann Spence of Minibeast Mayhem with Matty the Mantis Hierodula friendlii

Minibeast Mayhem have all sorts of amazing invertebrates hatching throughout the year. If you do happen to book me on a day when we might have something else a little special, and not already introduced to you here, I will try to bring it with me.

Holding any of The Bug Team is strictly a personal choice and it is down to you as an individual should you wish to. I want you to enjoy your experience and you just might surprise yourself! The Minibeast Mayhem Roadshow wants more than anything for the visit to you to be as much fun as it is interesting. We all learn through experience.

The Minibeast Mayhem Roadshow does not include Scorpions, Spiders or Snakes.

To put younger children at ease, I use a variety of non-living invertebrate objects to help illustrate the Minibeast topic.


Now it is time to introduce just a few of
The Bug Team who want to get up close and personal with you!
