What do spiders, crabs and insects have in common? They’re all arthropods! Arthropods are animals who have a segmented body, or a body that is made up of more than one part. They also have many joined legs and an exoskeleton. Arthropods are so common that they make up 75% of all the animals on our planet.
This month at Discovery Place Nature, we will be investigating Amazing Arthropods. Which ones have claws and stingers? Which arthropods can you eat? Stop by the Museum this month and explore these interesting critters up close.
Every Wednesday and Saturday at 12:30 p.m., join us for special story times and activities where kids and adults alike can discover millipedes, watch butterflies and engage with the arthropods that surround us.
What’s the top thing to do this month?
The great thing about arthropods is that they are all around us all the time! You can search for them on our monthly Nature Walk, a trip around the Paw Paw Nature Trail with a Naturalist, and search for some insect friends. Or, stroll throughout the Museum and see if you can identify all the creatures we’re learning about this month. Either way, it’ll be an arthropod adventure all month long.
