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 lets your 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 many 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.
Survival of the Slowest is produced by Little Ray’s Nature Centres in partnership with the Canadian Museum of Nature. Little Ray’s is the largest exotic animal rescue organization in Canada and most of the animals in the exhibition are rescues. The exhibition is staffed by trained professionals who carefully monitor the health and well-being of the animals on display. Learn more about their work at littlerays.org.
