Spiders Around the World

OCT 7 – 31

Limited-Time Exhibition
Exclusively at Butterfly Pavilion

Just in time for Halloween, spiders are arriving from around the globe this October for a limited-time engagement, Spiders Around the World, exclusively at Butterfly Pavilion. Engage with stunning, vibrant, and awe-inspiring tarantulas and walk amongst visually striking, exquisite, and free-roaming Orb Weavers spinning their intricate webs in Spider Dome!

More than 20 spider species will be on display during our engaging and educational exhibition, and we’ve got some festive visitors! Come meet South American wonders, including the Skeleton Tarantula and Colombian Pumpkin Patch Tarantula and get in the Halloween spirit! Meanwhile, extraordinary spiders like the Gooty Sapphire Ornamental Tarantula and the Ghost Ornamental Tarantula will encourage guests to view invertebrates with curiosity and wonder, not fear.

Butterfly Pavilion also invites guests to engage with some new friends in Spider Dome, an exotic enclosure full of orb-weaving spiders within the Wings of the Tropics exhibit. Get up close and personal with dozens of orb-weaving spiders displaying their elaborate, complex, and distinctive webs!

Discover their brilliance and significance during this special exhibition celebrating spiders and the incredible impact they make in our world.
