Pseudoscorpions: Getting to Know Your Secretive Neighbors 
Laura Segura Hernández, PhD student in the UNL School of Biological Sciences 

Pseudoscorpions – like real scorpions and spiders – are arachnids. They look like very small scorpions, but they have no tail. Pseudoscorpions are found all over the world, including here in Nebraska, and they are also romantic dancers and very creative hitchhikers. But are they venomous like scorpions? Can they weave silk like spiders? Join us to get a glimpse of the mysterious life of your (maybe) unnoticed neighbors. 

This FREE program will be presented via Zoom and Facebook Live. Register here for the Zoom session. To join us on Facebook Live, visit the UNSM Facebook page at 7:00 p.m. February 23rd!
