• Feel the pitter patter of hundreds of millipede feet on your palms
• Hold two forms of a massive beetle – the grub and the mighty adult
• Find out if you’re brave enough to hold a cockroach or scorpion
• Feed a giant centipede that’s longer than your hand
• Find out why humans can’t live without these amazing arthropods
