A new zoo opened this month in Williamsburg but visitors won’t find elephants, giraffes or gorillas there.
What the Grand Traverse Butterfly House and Bug Zoo does have is a South American cave roach named “Chaz.”
Chaz lives in the bug zoo with dozens of his creepy, crawly friends – including a collection of tarantulas, a ghost mantis from Africa named “Casper” and a hive of Michigan bees.
Cyndie Bobier opened the bug zoo earlier this month. The project took more than two years to get off the ground.
