Vinegaroon Activity

Recently, Animal Care Lead Lauren Bloomenthal noticed a strange phenomenon going on in our Insect Village: The exhibit Vinegaroon was actually doing something!

Not wanting to pass up the opportunity, Lauren grabbed her smartphone and captured this rarely seen activity. Watch this short video and hear possible explanations about what is going on.

Why is that so strange? This Sonoran Desert arachnid is nocturnal and therefore, rarely seen in the wild.
