The Oregon State University BugZoo includes a collection of live insects and related arthropods. Our in-house collection provides students with an opportunity to care for the critters and learn more about them in a stable, controlled environment. The bugs are also a major component of our outreach programs. We have various live exotic and endemic organisms in our collection, including: walking sticks, millipedes, cockroaches, beetles, spiders, termites, and other organisms. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a current inventory.
