MALE TARANTULA
February 13, 2005
Elizabeth Koval Maffeo created life-size model of a Male Tarantula for Lindsay Wildlife Museum. She also made a silicone mold for the museum so they can make more Male Tarantulas in the future. The purpose of making this model was to replace a taxidermy specimen that was unfortunately eaten by other insects.

Male Tarantulas created by Liz.
