Sorry, we're closed today. There’s always more to discover!
Sometimes being slow, small, or weak can have its advantages! Survival of the Slowest explores the often-overlooked species that have used their disadvantages to help them survive—and even thrive—in a world where large, strong, and fast animals are often at the top of the food chain.
This world-class exhibition will allow visitors to get up close and personal with more than 15 live animals including a two-toed sloth, red-footed tortoise, green iguana, four-toed hedgehog, bearded dragon, ball python, and more! Visitors will marvel in this immersive, educational experience, but only for a limited time at The Discovery!
La exposición Supervivencia del más lento se presenta en inglés y español.
