You’ll find that we get into the Halloween spirit in a big way here at the Florida Museum. Most of our exhibits team love coming to work in costume for the big day, and we put a lot of effort into decorations. This year, Elizabeth carved a pumpkin with the Museum alligator on it for the Rainforest.

I also want to highlight the first of a new species for the Rainforest, called the Pavon Emperor (Doxocopa pavon). Quite stunning!
