It may not be too late if you haven’t explored Royal Botanical Gardens’ Spiders Alive! Exhibit, which will be available until April 14th. More than 17 species of spiders and other creepy creatures are on display in the RBG Centre.

Visitors can see tarantulas, scorpions, black widows, and more. There’s an ancient spider fossil in limestone. Crickets and mealworms are also on display. Guests may sample a freeze-dried cricket, which is high in protein and has a nutty flavour.

Youngsters enjoy special programmings such as puppet shows, guest speakers and pajama parties. On certain dates, the exhibit is transformed into a nightlife experience for ages 19+ with pub games, food and cocktails. For further information go to www.rbg.ca.
