There is never a shortage of cool jobs at HMNS - fossil hunter, bug chef, snow wrangler just to name a few - but Erin and Laurie, entomologists and cheif caretakers for all our live insects - are probably in pretty stiff competition for the all-time coolest job award.
On top of raising exotic insects like giant katydids and Madagascar hissing cockroaches and caring for butterflies from chrysalid to conservatory, they also get to experience the awesome combination of kids + creepy crawlies with their Bugs on Wheels program. In the video below, they'll take you behind the scenes of the Cockrell Butterfly Center and through their typical day - from feeding the insects to getting the butterflies ready to flutter - plus show you some amazing insects up close.
