MELODY & HARMONY
Meet Melody and Harmony, twin sister crickets of Bunaboom Zoo. They love to sing and make music for me and you. It's a strange place to hear, and I know it is weird, but on their front legs is where you will find their ears.
If you did not know, you would probably miss it, there is a difference between a grasshopper and cricket. Grasshopper antennae are short, while a cricket's are long. And, crickets rub their wings not their legs when playing a song. If you want to learn more about all of their features, sign up to get letters from these lovely creatures.

Meet Fortune, the orb weaver spider of Bunaboom Zoo. Like most other spiders she has eight eyes and not two. She loves to make things with her own silk thread, including her home which of course is her web.
There are very few places you won't find a spider. If you want to know more about Fortune, you know where to find her.

Meet Doomsdave, the scorpion of Bunaboom Zoo. He'll pinch and he'll sting to be mean and be rude. But, the animals have learned how to handle his bad attitude. They just smile and laugh whenever he shows it. He just wants to be loved, and everyone knows it.
They have eight legs like their spider cousin, and also like them, eat bugs by the dozen. Scorpions live in almost any environment. In letters from Doomsdave, he can tell you about it.

Meet Macho, the monarch of Bunaboom Zoo. He is tiny, but mighty, and not afraid of you. He used to be shy for such a small guy, but he grew into something brand new, after coming out of his caterpillar cocoon.
Monarchs, in regions that are cold in the winter, will migrate a great distance to seek warmer weather. If you want to know more about butterflies, listen to Macho, he never lies.
THE BUMBLE BEE

Meet Lightning, the bumble bee of Bunaboom Zoo. He is always buzzing about looking for something to do. He will go where he wants and will do anything, as long as he does what he is told by his mother, the queen.
He collects pollen and nectar so that he can make honey. Working hours on flowers are how bees make their money. To learn more of his world, and his many adventures, Lightening wrote it all down, and can send it in letters.

Meet Star, the Bunaboom Zoo ladybug, named for her star-shaped spot. For most she is a joy, but for those who annoy, she is not. She saves the environment from plant-eating pests. In a ladybug's lifetime, she eats thousands of insects.
You can find ladybugs all over the planet. Except, where it is cold - they really can't stand it. If these beetles are bugs you want to know more about, read about it in letters that Star will mail out.
