Students oohed and aahed during a presentation of everything from a whip scorpion to millipedes Friday at the Ponchatoula Library Branch.

Workers with the Audubon Nature Institute’s Bugmobile presented the critters, up close and personal, to children who showed up to see what the Bugmobile had to offer.

The Bugmobile is a mobile education program by Audubon Zoo educators. The interactive, educational program offers up-close encounters with local arthropods and ones from around the world, according to the website. Students learned age-appropriate lessons about the arthropods’ life cycle, habitats, classification and much more.
