Specimen Information:

TARANTULA: The word “tarantula” is the common name for a group of hairy and often very large spiders belonging to the family Theraphosidae, of which approximately 900 species have been identified. They mainly eat insects, using the method of ambush as their primary weapon. Larger tarantulas have been known to kill animals as large as lizards, mice, or birds! While they may look menacing due to their looks (and their reputation), most tarantulas are actually harmless to humans. No tarantula is known to have a bite that is definitely lethal to humans—although a bite may be painful, the few cases in which a human has had severe symptoms from a tarantula bite is due to an allergic reaction to the venom, rather then to the actual venom. You gotta admit, these creatures still look a little freaky.

SCORPION: There are about 8000 species of scorpions living in the world today. Most scorpions are generally harmless and timid, and usually only use their stinger when involved in territorial disputes, when killing prey, or for defending itself. They often will run from danger or remain still in front of perceived predators. However, the stings of some scorpions can be dangerous to humans. The androctonus australis, or yellow-tailed scorpion of North Africa, and the leiurus quinquestriatus, or deathstalker scorpion, are examples of scorpions that should DEFINITELY be avoided.

Why worry about messing around with a live tarantula or scorpion when you can get a real one already prepared for you to examine anyways? Students, teachers and insect fans needn’t worry, these insects won’t scurry away or bite! This is a great specimen of a REAL tarantula AND scorpion mounted in a clear acrylic block. Great Christmas or birthday item for the young science student or for the serious entomologist! Everyone will be commenting on your unique gift-giving idea!
