Arthropods: The Creepy Crawly Niche
Chilean Rose Hair
My name is “Arthur” to remind you that all spiders (and scorpions) are Arthropods (the largest group of animals on earth). I’m sure you’ve heard of Rosie, my relative at the Butterfly Pavilion. Just like Rosie’s caretakers, Party Safari staff allows people to hold me and my two Chilean Rose Hair compadres. We are a very gentle tarantula species, so get over your fears and enjoy the experience!
My name is “Fuego” because I have fire legs and my relatives are from Mexico. Sometimes I show my defensive behavior (flicking hairs) so you can look at me, but only Party Safari staff can hold me.
My name is “Roja” because I have red knees and my relatives are from Mexico. I am over ten years old, which means I am female. Let Party Safari staff explain why. Like my Mexican relative above, I also flick hairs when I get annoyed, so I’m just for viewing.
My name is “Mowgli” because I am from India (The Jungle Book). I am part of a very defensive tarantula species, and I show my bright yellow undersides to warn potential predators that I can deliver a potent bite. As such, I am for viewing, but not for touching.
Asian Rainforest Scorpion
My name is “UV” because I do something incredible under UV light. Our Party Safari staff will teach you whether my creepy crawly friends and I are poisonous or venomous. (There is a big difference between the two.)
Desert Hairy Scorpion
My name is “Blondie” because I am yellow. I also do something incredible under UV light (all scorpions do) so make sure our Party Safari staff brings one of us to your event to see what happens.
Experience the Creepy Crawly!
