Visit Butterfly Pavilion all month during October to meet species that use powerful venoms and poisons to ward off predators and dominate unsuspecting prey. It’s a chance to live on the edge and get up close and personal with some of nature’s most impressive toxic terrors including the Red Bark Scorpion, Metallic Pinktoe Tarantula, Colorado Tiger Centipede, White Eyed Assassin Bugs, Velvet Ants, Giant African Millipede, Orb Weavers (as part of the Spider Pavilion), and even Monarch Butterflies who sequester toxins from the food they eat as caterpillars and their bright colors advertise their toxicity as adults.
