The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles opened its yearly spider enclosure on Sunday. You can wander among the orb weavers for a half hour with a timed ticket. The cost is $5. Just watch your head: the spiders go where they go. But mostly they stick to their webs. The spider pavilion is open through Dec. 11.

Not a joke: the exhibition is sponsored by Western Exterminator. Heh.
