Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders @ Fullerton Museum Center

Fullerton Museum Center latest exhibit “Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders” opened on January 26.

Freakish, bewildering marvels of the insect world are on display in Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders. Resembling an old-fashioned circus sideshow, this exhibit explores the truth, myths and mysteries surrounding some of nature’s most curious creatures – many of them alive and on view.

Those daring enough to enter will be captivated by the deceptive and treacherous techniques these insects can wield on unsuspecting predators. They will learn about how the Giant African Millipede, though harmless-looking enough, can unleash a harmful cyanide secretion. The “Devil with Two Heads,” also known as the Vietnamese Centipede, exposes how it can confound predators with a tail that looks just like its head.

The exhibit will run until April 14, 2019.
