It's true that Florida bugs sometimes come extra-large, but for a limited time bugs that are larger than life have landed at Leu Gardens near downtown Orlando. The latest buzz in the botanical park is an exhibit of giant insect sculptures on display, now through April 15, 2016.

Big Bugs is a traveling exhibit featuring different insects and other arthropods. The display teaches visitors the difference between different species of spiders and insects.
