Creatures of the night

Explore the myths and realities of nocturnal life in this free talk and get an up close look at some glowing wolf spiders!

The night is a time of mystery for humans, a time for fairy-tales and dark adventure. It is also the favourite time of day for many animals, among which we find the most mysterious and feared creatures. In this talk, we will see the science behind the legend. We'll discover what gives a werewolf's eyes that evil glow, why owls are so smart, how our superheroes got to be so cool and many other secrets from the dwellers of the dark.

Presented by Igor Armiach, a Masters degree student from Israel who is currently doing research on spider taxonomy at the Museum. His presentation will include a brief talk and a glass box of glowing wolf spiders to view.
