One of the nation’s most knowledgeable entomologists (experts in the branch of zoology dealing with insects), Zack Lemann
has shared his passion for insects with the public since 1992 at the Audubon Zoo. Over the years as an entomologist, he has come to learn the nutritional value of insects – ranging from crickets and dragonflies to honey pot ants, beetles and waxworms. The Audubon Insectarium where he works has even opened a café called “Bug Appétit” which cooks and serves such favorite dishes as Chocolate Chirp Cookies and Cricket King Cake for visitors.
