Commander Ben Eats a Live Mealworm at Explore UT

Dr. Parrish Brady gives a tour of the many insects on display at Explore UT, including a glowing scorpion from Africa. To my surprise, the tour ends with a challenge to eat a live mealworm. Do I choose BBQ or Ranch or take the mealworm straight?

Dr. Brady is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Integrative Biology section of the College of Natural Sciences at UT Austin.

Each year, the University of Texas at Austin holds a campus wide event with fun activities and education for kids and prospective students of all ages. This year’s explore Explore UT event was held on March 3, 2012.

There will be another great opportunity to learn about insects at the Insecta Fiesta at the Lake Austin Center – UT Austin Brackenridge Field Lab on April 21, 2012.

Hope to see you there!
