Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders

Step right up and behold the Devil with Two Heads! Witness scorpions that glow-in-the-dark! Experience the offending stench of the Giant Vinagaroon!

Freakish, bewildering marvels of the insect world are on display in "Dr. Entomo's Palace of Exotic Wonders." Resembling an old-fashioned circus sideshow, this exhibit explores the truth, myths and mysteries surrounding some of nature's most curious creatures -- many of them alive and on view.

Live insects on display include:

  • Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches

  • Zebra Tarantula

  • Emperor Scorpion

  • African Millipedes

  • Giant mealworms/Darkling Beetles

  • Giant Sonoran Centipede

  • Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula

... and many more!

This exhibit is organized by Outhouse Exhibit Services.
