One of the weird/cool/neat-o things Raimund and I did on our trip was check out the Bug Zoo. Raimund finds entomology pretty fascinating and I'm completely creeped out by bugs, so this pit stop was a must.
Did you know that scorpions glow under a black light? I had no idea. Also, I just wanted to throw this out there...I was braver than Raimund and held a tarantula. The only way I could describe the feeling was that it reminded me of a hamster. I'm weird, I know. Keep in mind I have a horrible fear of spiders too.
