Join us as Museum Educator Carolyn gives an introduction to the very cool world of centipedes! We’ll talk about anatomy, venom and more. We’ll even be feeding our hungry centipede and asking for your help in picking out a name for our centipede friend!

At-Home Activity
This activity is a pretty easy one – help us name our new centipede! Watch the recording of our livestream and consider all the cool facts about centipedes you learned. If you have an idea for an appropriate name, reach out and let us know the name AND why you think it’s a good match. You can submit name suggestions by sending us an email at, sending in a name via Facebook Messenger or by commenting on the original video.

Past centipede names that are now out of the running include “Large Marge,” “Cersei,” “Johnny,” and “Sandy.”
