Harry's Big Adventure

Harry's Big Adventure

Harry, a Chinese praying mantis from Memphis, Tennessee, is a well-travelled celebrity. Delivered with great fanfare by Terminix, Harry arrived at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium just in time for its grand opening in 2008. He entertained and educated kids at museums and science centers on the way to his new home in New Orleans. You can visit Harry at the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and read about his adventures.
