In the Dark Exhibit
In the dark layers beneath the soil, under the sea, or in the shadows of night, unseen worlds teeming with life are illuminated in this enlightening exhibition. Crawl inside a giant bat head, experience life as a termite, and explore the worlds of bobcats, skunks, and cicadas. Plus, learn how birds find their way flying at night, how bats use echo-location, and how some species have adapted to life in the dark! Free for Members.
