Survival of the Slowest

Saturday, October 26 – Sunday, February 2
Visiting Exhibition Gallery

Join us for the opening day of Survival of the Slowest! BCM members are invited to a members-only preview between 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., opening to the general public after 12:00 p.m.!

Survival of the Slowest features 19 distinct habitats with live animals, including Roger the two-toed sloth, a hedgehog, a chameleon, and many more. Each day this exhibit will offer up-close experiences with slow and small species that survive and thrive in a world where large, strong, and fast animals are often at the top of the food chain. Survival of the Slowest prompts families to appreciate the different evolutionary paths of these incredible creatures, and showcases the value of deliberation in our fast-paced city. While exploring Survival of the Slowest, young visitors will explore concepts of biology and evolutionary science. Live animal presentations are offered throughout the day to educate, entertain, and most importantly, connect visitors with wildlife and nature.
