Nebraska museum sets program on arachnids
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The University of Nebraska State Museum of Natural History's next "Sunday with a Scientist" program will explore spiders and other eight-legged critters.
The program is scheduled to run from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 at Morrill Hall.
The program title is "Eight-legged Encounters." There will be crafts, demonstrations, experiments, live and preserved specimens on display, and much more.
Spiders are the most commonly known arachnid, but arachnids include ticks, mites, scorpions and "daddy longlegs," among others. All arachnids have eight legs, but unlike insects, they don't have antennae.
