SuperWild: Discovering Animal Super-Powers
Discover the amazing world of animal super powers at the Living Coast Discovery Center’s new seasonal exhibit.
Guests get up and close and personal with creatures that walk on walls, possess super strength, are invisible to the naked eye, and can even regenerate limbs — all natural adaptations that help them survive in the wild. Some of these animals include the Mexican axolotl, pygmy leaf chameleon, bird poop frog, flying draco lizard, fishing ribbon snake, green basilisk, giant millipede, horseshoe crab, pink-toed tarantula, and toco toucan. What's your Super-Power?
The SuperWild Exhibit is free with Living Coast Discovery Center admission March 28 to September 7.
”Smacks” of artist-created Jellyfish are hanging at the Living Coast Discovery Center. In keeping with the Living Coast’s tradition of partnering with local artists for its seasonal exhibits, SuperWild will also include an art component. Artists Debb Solan and Marjorie Pezzoli (aka: the Jellygirls) of Fusionglass Co. and Pezzoli Art have created an extensive “smack” of sea jellies out of recycled materials that will be displayed in the Living Coast’s main galleria to bring awareness to the global issue of plastic ocean pollution.
These striking, large-scale jellies have previously been showcased at the NOAA Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Museum of Monterey, and the Oceanside Museum of art. The installation will be at the Center through Labor Day, September 7.
