Description: Be the first to explore the science of what's eating you in this skin-crawling exhibition. Examine the what, why, when and how of mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, leeches and other parasites known as sanguinivores (creatures that eat blood). Learn why bloodsuckers are important to the ecosystem -- and how to keep them out of your system. Attack of the Bloodsuckers! offer visitors the chance to look a real leech in the mouth; pull off your socks and test your bug-appealing foot odor; receive a big hug from a giant, inflating tick; get itchy and knotty with the life-size game of "Twitcher" — a buggy variation on Twister. The exhibit runs through February 3, 2013.
