Bug Museum owner and monster movie fan Wade Harrell will be showing off a variety of live arthropods that have made appearances in movies and TV over the years. Cockroaches, tarantulas, scorpions and more have all been movie stars, menacing everyone from Harry Potter to James Bond as well as starring in monster movies of their own. We'll learn why there's really little to fear from these creatures, and learn why certain species appear again and again.
