Spiders Alive! at Royal Botanical Gardens

Date/Time

Jan 19, 2019 to Apr 14, 2019
10:00 AM until 5:00 PM

Description

We've invited spiders and their arthropod friends to crawl on over for a visit this winter.

Explore amazing adaptations and behaviours of spiders and other many-legged creatures in two interactive exhibits and daily programs for all ages.

In Spiders Alive!, visitors can explore spider anatomy and evolutionary history, learn about their signature traits — venom and silk-making — and be surprised by little-known defense mechanisms such as mimicry and noise-making. In addition to live arachnids representing approximately 17 species, the exhibition includes larger-than-life models of spiders, a climbable spider model 50 times life size, and a rare 100-million-year-old fossil of a spider in limestone.
