FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- You can step into the tent where hundreds of live butterflies surround you, or you can even check out their new addition to the "Bugs" exhibit.

This year they wanted to include the kind you don't see on a regular basis when you're outside.

"There's all kinds of different variety of bugs everything from scorpions, tarantulas and different types of beatles. We want to highlight the bugs as well as the butterflies because they are important to the ecosystem,"Tom Hegge who is the supervisor of the physical plant said.

The exhibit will be going on from April 14th until July 8th.
