How can slow and steady win the race? Does bigger always mean better? Survival of the Slowest takes a look at animals that are slow, small or weak and how they use these traits to survive and thrive!
Exhibit On Display: Jan. 23-Sept. 12, 2021
Members are invited to get an up-close look at wildlife like a live sloth, hedgehog, iguana and more. Meet animals that have survived for millions of years despite being very slow, and learn about the puzzling sides of evolution and adaptation. Discover the difference between warm- and cold-blooded, discover why some animals need less food and see the unique ways they hide from predators.
At this virtual member reception featured speaker Delivis ‘Del’ Niedzialek, animal keeper and Manager of Member Programs at Little Ray’s Nature Centre, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibit and share the survival secrets of select animals featured in the exhibition.
Attendees are invited to participate in a LIVE Q&A at the end of the evening.
