Going to the insect museum was a very unexpected but great experience. We are both definitely not fans of bugs but we’re able to step out of our comfort zone and experience something really cool. Before going we were scared of tiny little bugs but found ourselves holding huge iguanas, lizards, scorpions and spiders and many more. Holding the spiders was definitely the scariest for me. Being able to feel the tiny little hairs on each eight legs sent shivers down my spine. When the workers there said that it may bite if you agitate it I almost freaked out but I knew these people were trained for their job and I’m glad I was able to experience it. If we had not gone to the museum and had this great experience, we might have not been able to build up the courage to hold these incredible animals and face our fears. Now having done this it doesn’t seem that bad at all. Not only were we able to face our greatest fears by holding these creatures we were able to learn about them too.
