Featuring life-size and larger-than-life models, videos, several species of live animals including the axolotl and mantis shrimp, and interactive exhibits, Nature’s Superheroes: Life at the Limits highlights an array of organisms with surprising ways of thriving in harsh environments, finding a mate or their next meal, leveraging strength, endurance, speed, and more.
