Spider exhibit

We went to a spider exhibit today with my sister and niece. Although a part of me felt bad for those guys, being locked in a box and having humans staring them all day, the biologist in me took this as an opportunity to learn about spiders and see the kinds of spiders that we don’t have here in Finland. It was a great experience and Siiri also had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures:

A hairy one but absolutely one of my favorites.

Near the glass..

This one was really trying to climb to the roof perhaps, but (s)he kept on falling a little once in a while..

känny 101

A shy one, keeping it’s back to us.

This one was unfortunate enough to fall from its climb while we were watching. Hope it wasn’t too embarrassing 🙂

känny 109

This was a small one, compared to some of the others, but still cute.
