    didn't even realize this place was there until someone on the boards had posted about seeing their arachnids. went there today and took a lot of pictures! it was a great place to visit.

    theres a "laboratory" in the beginning with lots of future butterflies and a few mature ones.

    Wow...cool stuff. The Damon is actually D. diadema and the 'water beetles' are Belostomatids genus Lethocerus.

    I love the pics and the place looks like a fun place to visit.

    I am adding this place to my list of places to go to this year. It's going to be a bit tough since I live on the west coast of florida (north of tampa.)
