The Lake Superior Zoo is gearing up for a new exhibit called "Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close" starting June 11th, and Cooper and I were lucky enough to get a sneak peak.

This summer is your chance to explore this fascinating world with 20 different varieties of beautiful, giant tarantula spiders alive and up close. Some of the varieties are The Green Bottle, The Indian Ornamental, and the Goliath Tarantula which is the largest in the world!

This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to learn about this mysterious and often misunderstood creature. Check out the video below as I was able to get up close and personal with Rosie the Tarantula. :)
