Whip scorpions that shoot acid from their tails.
Butterflies with wings like dead leaves on the outside that flash a brilliant blue on the inside.
Massive tarantulas, quick and agile enough to race up trees and take down lizards.
Insectapalooza, a celebration of bizarre, bad and beneficial bugs, will be held at Cornell’s Comstock Hall Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm.
Hosted by the Department of Entomology, Insectapalooza is in its 13th year and regularly draws upward of 2,500 people to Cornell to witness hundreds of live insects, spiders and other fascinating arthropods.
