Join us for the members-only preview of Survival of the Slowest. Do animals always need to be the strongest, the biggest and the fastest to survive? Or can it sometimes be advantageous to be small or slow? Just ask a tortoise! In Survival of the Slowest, meet animals that have survived for millions of years despite being very slow, and learn about the puzzling sides of evolution and adaptation. Meet live animals, including a two-toed sloth, tarantula, chameleon and horned frog. Touch a tortoise, iguana, snake, hedgehog or gecko, catch live animal feedings and more!

See our newest special exhibit first and for free with special family programming.
