The Art & Science of Arachnids
The Art & Science of Arachnids features three themed cubes which hold 100 live arachnids.

The Arts Cube illustrates the connection we have with arachnids in film, literature and music. The Culture Cube highlights arachnid folklore and mythology, arachnid conservation and arachnids as food.
