Underground World

  • This special exhibit focuses on animals which live above and below ground. The species at the exhibit demonstrate animals’ various adjustments to this special habitat, including lack of daylight and oxygen. At the exhibit, children can crawl into special tunnels and see the meerkats and prairie dogs at ‘eye-level.” In the special dark room, you can see the less visible world of special hidden animals, such as the naked mole rat, which spends its entire life under ground within a system of interconnected tunnels. At the exhibit, there are additional species, such as the Mexican tetra, a blind fish which lives in dark caves with no light. Other species include the golden hamster, the Israeli mole rat, and the cockroach.
