Visitors to the exhibition will explore different natural environments and the unique life forms that inhabit them through a combination of hands-on displays, walk-through dioramas, and fascinating specimens. Visitors will wander through a nocturnal forest past glowing mushrooms, and discover the amazing underground worlds beneath basement floors and backyards.
The exhibition will show visitors why animals have evolved to a nocturnal lifestyle or dark habitat, and the many ways they have adapted when it comes to finding food, avoiding predators, moving about, and making their homes. Visitors will learn how bats use sonar to locate prey, and how animals deep in the soil must use senses such as touch and smell to navigate.
Visiting the exhibition is included in the purchase of a paid admission to Science Central.
