A 12-year-old boy from Mesa, Arizona, with a lifelong interest in bugs got what he wished for earlier this month at the Bohart Museum of Entomology.

Ty Elowe, who seeks a career in entomology, asked his mother for an early 13th birthday present: a visit to the Bohart Museum of Entomology. It houses a global collection of nearly eight million insect specimens and also features a live “petting zoo” of Madagascar hissing cockroaches, walking sticks and tarantulas.

Ty described the visit, Oct. 13-14, as “one of the greatest trips of my life.”
