Beginnings is a great introduction to the Museum where kids can explore the life cycle of young animals.
Animals in their youngest stages of life including fire-bellied newts, Eastern box turtles and barred tiger salamanders, give young learners the chance to get up close and understand some of the amazing transformations of growth.
Don’t miss everyone’s favorite, the American
Our alligator friend is still a juvenile and currently has yellow banding
along his tail, but as he grows up he will lose these yellow markings and his
tail will turn olive brown and black, while the areas around his jaw, neck, and
belly will remain a creamy white color.
Make sure to keep your ears open when visiting him. Alligators are capable of making a number of vocalizations including hissing, grunting, bellowing, distress yelps and croaking. While he may have plenty to say, you probably won't catch him having many meals. Because they are ectothermic (cold-blooded), alligators do not need to eat much. In fact, a 100-pound dog will eat more in a year than an 800-pound alligator!
