Insects, Arachnids and Bugs, Oh My!

A staff from Como Zoo visited the KinderPlus and DuckTail classes.  We learned about the differences between arachnids, insects and other bugs- for example, arachnids have 8 legs, insects have 6 legs and other bugs can have hundreds of legs!!

We got an up close view of some live bugs- a millipede, a hissing cockroach, and a tarantula.  We also had a chance to play with some bug figures and dress up as bugs.
