Albany - Some of the most feared animals in southwest Georgia are the center of a new exhibit coming to the Flint Riverquarium. Rattlesnakes are some of the venous animals that are part of exhibit coming in early spring called "Venom: A Painfully Exciting Experience."

The exhibit will feature the venomous snakes, spiders, and scorpions of Georgia.

"We're buying special, micro-camera systems so that you can see the black widow spider, the scorpion, and the fire ants really up close and personal as they do their thing," said Director Doug Noble.

The exhibit will also have a petting and feeding zoo of sting rays. Parents don't worry - their barbs have been removed.

The exhibit will replace, "Turtle: Life in the Slow Lane," which will leave December 31st. You'll also be able to navigate through a massive fire ant mound.
