Eye to eye with the largest poisonous snake in the world, the king cobra, or the most venomous, the inland taipan - this exhibition makes it possible!
Scorpions, tarantulas, black widows, nature has equipped them all with a super weapon: venom! They have been using it for millions of years to protect themselves from enemies or to catch prey themselves. But how dangerous are rattlesnakes and the like for us humans? The name of the poison dart frog already advises caution, but should we also beware of velvet grasshoppers or giant centipedes?
On their expedition through the museum, curious visitors observe the living animals in their terrariums up close. They explore how differently the poisons work and how medicine makes use of them.
