Seasonal – Open June 7 Through September

Could you survive as a wild animal living among the streets, sidewalks and sewer pipes of the urban jungle? Find out at Wildlife Challenge. You’ll crawl, climb and claw your way through tests urban wildlife face every day. Are you up to the challenge?

Exhibition Highlights

Squirrels use their long tails to balance. Try scurrying across narrow beams using your arms for balance.

Egrets navigate thick grass and deep mud with narrow bodies and wide feet. Can you make your way through a soft, misty field of bamboo?

Worms wriggle with their complex system of muscles. Use your muscles to squirm among a worm burrow of giant balls.

Rats have poor eyesight and powerful senses of smell, hearing and touch. Use your senses to navigate through a series of pipes.

Spiders climb webs using just the tips of their legs, which often have tiny claws and toothed bristles. Try crawling across a suspended web without getting stuck.

Pretend to be a white-tailed deer and practice your camouflage skills in a covered passageway.
