How do animals change as they grow? What do skeletons have to do with how an animal moves? How do animals today compare with their ancient ancestors? Get the answers to these questions and more with human museum staffers Javier and Arielle. Each month we will discuss a different theme while sharing specimens from the museum collections and interacting with some of the museum’s incredible live animals!
Ever wonder what a tarantula and a horseshoe crab have in common? Did you know snakes once had legs? What exactly are the dinosaurs' living descendents? By examining fossils and other clues we can learn all about modern-day animals and their ancient ancestors! Join human museum staffers Javier and Arielle as they lead you in a 45-minute program with live animals and specimens from the museum collections. This event will be fun for the whole family so bring your questions and sense of wonder.
