African Animals

Located on BVM's main floor, the African Animals exhibit provides an up close and personal view of over 50 taxidermy animal specimens from the African continent. Whether looking at a lion, leopard, zebra or one of the largest collections of African antelope, you can discover how both predator and prey have evolved traits over millions of years that allow them to survive.  Also present in the exhibit are two animals that don't quite belong. Can you spot them?
