Today's side deal gets you one-day admission to the Seattle Bug Safari on Western Avenue for $4 (an $8 value). Feel your deep-seated phobias for multi-legged exoskeletons evaporate after making the acquaintance of 54 fascinating, exotic insectoid species—from behind the safety of thick glass, of course. Check the site or call ahead before dropping in, as Seattle Bug Safari is closed to the public during Groupon-exempt field trips.
Whether you like it or not, arachnids, millipedes, centipedes, dodechapedes, and various other creepy-crawlies are our next-door neighbors in nature who can teach us valuable lessons about eating leaves and spinning our own organic silks. Satisfy your insectish curiosities with a self-guided viewing of the scorpions and phasmatodeas that have enriched so much soil and so many blockbuster movie scenes. Your tour will last about 30–40 minutes—depending on how long you stop to listen to the Madagascar hissing cockroaches or gawk at the African giant millipedes—and will fill you with intriguing factoids, dazzling sights that defy the imagination, and (paradoxically) a better understanding of your own humanity.
