Albany-  The new exhibit at the Parks at Chehaw will have your skin crawling. School students Friday got the first look at the parks first temporary exhibit, the Arachni-Shack. The exhibit is made up of 18 different species of spiders and scorpions from around the world.

"Spiders will range there from something that might sit on the end of your fingertip to the biggest one is probably six, seven inches in leg span," said Ben Roberts, Assistant Curator.

Home Depot donated all the lumber for the exhibit and Pensacola Junior College's Zoo Animal Technology program helped build the enclosures. The exhibit will run through September and then a new exhibit will be brought in next spring.
