"Attack of the Bloodsuckers!" Exhibit at the Audubon Louisiana Nature Center

"Audubon Louisiana Nature Center guests are invited to visit this special exhibit to discover the biological wonders of sanguinivores — creatures that eat blood — through encounters with live species and interactive educational features starting May 29 through September 1.  Attack of the Bloodsuckers! explores the science of what’s biting you in this skin-crawling installation.  The kid-friendly exhibition examines the what, why, when, and how of mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, leeches, and other parasites.  Guests can learn why bloodsuckers are important to the ecosystem — and how to keep them out of your system." - audubonnatureinstitute.org
