On November 9th, 2017 our lab was invited to come present our work at the Exploratorium’s After Dark event titled “Animal Appetite” where researchers were invited to talk about all things “appetite” from learning about culinary cuisine, learning what other animals eat, and of course learning about what spiders eat and how they go about catching their prey. We brought a collection of some local and exotic live arachnids to demonstrate how arachnids hunt for their prey and talk about what our lab is doing to better understand the different prey choices of Hawaiian Tetragnatha spiders.
