For those who grow faint when an ordinary house spider pops up from behind a lamp, a tarantula embodies the ultimate in fear. But these oversized arachnids, the mastiffs of the spider world, are fascinating creatures.
The Delaware Museum of Natural History presents Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close, an exhibit that features a stunning live array of the not-so-little guys. You are not allowed to bring a rolled-up newspaper. Call 302.658.9111 or visit www.delmnh.org for more information.
