October Treat!

 

So October is all about the scary, spooky, and creepy, right?  Well, we may be a tiny bit late, but for the rest of the month we have a creepy crawly addition to the hands-on area...a tarantula and scorpion!

Our Rose-hair Tarantulas are very docile, and beautiful to look at.  They get their name from the light pink hairs on their "head", or cephalothorax.  Originating in Chile, they are also known as the Chilean Rose.  They are always a big hit at parties, so why not bring them out for some special spooky handling??  

 

 

The Emperor Scorpion is the largest type of scorpion in the world...however, they have the least amount of venom.  Ours DO still have their stingers, but their pincers are their main defense.  You can tell the level of danger by the size of both:  big stinger, small pincers = VERY venomous...and vice versa.  The Emperor has huge pincers, which they actually use more for sense than defense.  Their pincers are covered in tiny little hairs that they use almost like a cat's whiskers...to "feel" around their environment.  They are from Africa, love to eat crickets and super worms, and can glow TURQUOISE under a black light!!

 

So come by before the month is over for a very creepy type of petting zoo!!
