MWAHAHA! The spiders are back! Hundreds of them — and they're not in terrariums, and there's no glass separating them from you. Enter the walk-through Spider Pavilion at your own risk and see golden-silk spiders, the black-and-yellow garden spider and many other fascinating orb-weavers. Spider experts will tell you all about how they trap food and spin webs and write words like “radiant” in them. Maybe not that last part. Nighttime flashlight tours are also planned.

Mondays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 27. Continues through Nov. 8, 2009
