Amazing Animals: Built to Survive brought the amazing science of the animal kingdom to life and explored the exciting promise it holds for the future. Guests experienced how plants and animals stayed in one piece and how they were able to withstand the elements using an astonishing array of internal apparatuses. Through comparing the similarities between muscles and motors, legs and springs, claws and clamps, and many more mechanisms guests discovered how all living things have the right tools for the job of survival. Digital interactives, immersive movies, hands-on displays and incredible specimens created an unforgettable experience!
