The Survival of the Slowest exhibit is coming to the Florida Museum of Natural History on January 23! In the exhibit, you will encounter live animals that prefer the slow life while learning how they survive in fast-paced environments.
The exhibit will showcase 16 animal species such as the box turtle, pine snake and the Linnean two-toed sloth, and a keeper will be there to answer questions and ensure the wellbeing of the animals.
“Most people hear the phrase ‘survival of the fittest’ and assume it means the strongest will survive, but that’s not always the case. What about when being slow or small is an advantage in an environment?” said Julie Waters, Florida Museum exhibit coordinator. “This exhibit will challenge visitors to think about what it truly takes to survive.”
Admission prices for the exhibit can be found here. Remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing inside the museum.
