What might your life be like if you spent half your day on land and the other half in the ocean? How would you hunt for food if you were only a few inches long? Is one type of snake really all that different from another? Get the answers to these questions and more as human museum staffers Javier and Ryan introduce you to several live animals. Each month we will discuss a different theme while feeding and interacting with some of the museum’s incredible animals!

Predators come in all sizes. Imagine that you are only a few inches long. How would you get around, hunt for food, and keep from being hunted in our huge world? This week we’ll discover some secrets to survival from the small, but mighty animals in the arthropod family. Join human museum staffers Javier and Ryan, and guest scientist Crystal Maier, entomology collections manager at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, 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.

Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture
