Get your tickets, and step right up into a carnival of creatures. Famed comedian Carrot Top serves as your guide through this exhibit.
Open your eyes to body morphing Guinea worms, rash causing Hookworms, kid-loving Pinworms, and eye invading Toxocara worms. Even potentially beneficial human-feeders like leeches and maggots. There are many critters that prey on humans to successfully complete their life cycles. Some are just mildly irritating while others are responsible for infectious diseases like Lyme and epidemic outbreaks of fatal ailments like Malaria.
