Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close

Description: The secrets of the tarantula's world are on full display in Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close. With a fearsome reputation and looks to match, there is much to learn about these gentle giants of the spider world. There are more than 900 known species of tarantulas, which live all over the globe. They can be found living anywhere from the tallest rainforest treetops to deep underground in the most arid deserts. Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close features a unique array of live tarantulas, which showcases their varied life habits and habitats. Species on display include a Goliath Bird Eating tarantula (the largest of all tarantulas), the rare Green Bottle Blue tarantula, and the Indian Ornamental tarantula, a species troubled by loss of habitat in the wild. In all, 20 live tarantulas are on display and each have a unique story to tell. The exhibit focuses on the diverse and natural beauty of tarantulas, and provides uniquely engaging educational experiences. Special features of the exhibit include interactive components such as "Tarantulas of the World" interactive world map; "Name That Tarantula" identification activity, "The Legend of the Tarantella" music showcase and more.
