18 Dec-31 March. The Royal Museum of Central Africa in Brussels hosts an exhibition that delves into the fascinating and sometimes scary world of spiders.
The arachnid family has inhabited our planet for over 400 million years - predating dinosaurs - and for centuries spiders have inspired countless fables and even a superhero.
Through film footage and scientific illustrations the exhibition provides an insight into the lives of these creatures and also gives visitors an intimate view of several large spiders and scorpions.
Among the species on show are the curlyhair tarantula, the redknee bird spider, the red baboon spider, the black widow, the goliath birdeater, and the emperor scorpion.
Originating in Poland, the exhibition comes to Belgium after touring Germany and the Netherlands.
10.00-17.00 Sat-Sun 10.00-18.00
