All of these photos were taken at the San Francisco insect zoo.

Some kind of ant.
HUGE wood cockroaches. These guys blended in with the tree bark and were about two to three inches long.
I don't know what these were but I found their healthy food choice interesting :)
Update: Thanks to my friend George, this is a millipede.
First I have to say insects of all kinds give me the creeps. I have been to the insect area of the SF zoo before and taken photos but due to the lighting they rarely come out well enough to post. Today, however was different. I was in there alone for a while and had to admit I felt very uneasy. Even though all of these species were behind glass I kept having visions of being somehow locked in there at night with all of these creepy crawlers surrounding me. I did have some great ideas for a horror movie :)
My two questions this week are:
1. Are you afraid or uneasy around insects?
2. Do you have an insect zoo or museum in your area?
