Thrilling, hands-on experiences and demonstrations with live specimens will teach students the five major vertebrate groups and their distinguishing characteristics in a memorable way.

Discover how being “cold-blooded” or “warm-blooded” benefits an animal, learn the difference between a frog and a toad, and find out which animals are the “rulebreakers” of the animal kingdom!
