KINGMAN - Discussion about the critters that scare people most will kick off the 2014 season of the Arizona Game and Fish Department's Wildlife Series.

"Venomous Critters" will kick off the six-part series from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Friday at the Kingman Mohave County Library, 3269 N. Burbank St. Seating is limited to 52 participants and is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The department is asking that those who have heard the presentation before stay home and allow others to attend.

"Spiders and snakes rank among the top five fears people have," said Zen Mocarski, information and education program manager for the Game and Fish Region 3 office in Kingman. "This talk tends to fill the room. People have a lot of questions when it comes to snakes, spiders and scorpions."

This marks the fifth season the library has served as the host and sponsor for the presentation. The series itself is in its seventh season.

The presentations will run about 45 minutes to allow time for questions.
