Wild Wednesday

Special event

Wed 15th April, Woodhorn Museum

10am-3.30pm

Go wild at Woodhorn Museum!

Get up close and personal with real creepy crawlies as we welcome Guy Tansley of ‘Bugsnstuff’ to the museum from 10am to 3.30pm.

See giant tarantulas, tree frogs, geckos, snakes and beetles. Try and spot the praying mantis and stick insects camouflaged amongst the leaves and guess the number of legs on a giant millipede.

Guy Tansley has been keeping and breeding exotic insects for over 30 years and brings his enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject to his displays. His travels include the rain forests of Borneo, South America, and West Africa to study the habits and habitats of insects and spiders. Having visited these rain forests he can tell you firsthand about the sights and sounds of these magnificent places and the amazing creatures that live there.
