This optical mouse is no optical illusion. A real spider is embedded in clear acrylic. A visual prod to surf the net for naturalist's delights.
This Glow in the Dark Spider Computer Mouse recalls insects flying, climbing or swimming in the plexi-glass walled displays at O. Orkin Insect Zoo, National Museum of Natural History. The O. Orkin Insect Zoo is a special exhibit hall on the 2nd Floor of the museum where visitors can observe live insects and their many-legged relatives. Volunteers conduct tarantula feeding demonstrations, work with live insects that visitors may touch and hold, and answer questions about the many-legged creatures that live in the Insect Zoo.
