All children eat. There are many ways animals -- including humans -- eat.
Through this exhibit, visitors compare and contrast animal eating habits and mouth anatomy through interpretive and interactive displays. They examine teeth, tongues and insect’s mouths as tools. Visitors discover the differences between Herbivores (animals that eat plants), Carnivores (animals that eat other animals) and Omnivores (animals that eat plants and animals).
What You Learn:
- Critical Thinking
- Observation skills
- Mouth anatomy

Food is often a gateway to different cultures and a child’s own place in the natural world. Take a look around the grocery store to find new foods to taste. Make predictions about other animals’ eating habits in the wild, then look up the answers once you form theories.
