Insects and Other Arthropods

Friday, March 16, 2012

10:00 - 11:30 AM

Case 23B

There are more insects on the planet than all other animals combined! Learn what they all have in common (and how they are similar to and different from tarantulas, scorpions, crabs, shrimp, and barnacles), and why they have been so successful. Many people don’t like insects, but the world as we know if would not be possible without them.

This program is FREE but reservations are required. Space is limited.
