Join Animal Embassy at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center for this Outdoors Adventure program. Like people, animals come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. The vibrant colors and patterns found in the animal kingdom show not only the beauty of all living things, but also serve to help animals survive in their habitats. Colors can send a warning to potential predators, attract a mate, regulate an animal’s temperature, or serve as evidence of an animal’s last meal! Patterns aid an animal with camouflage and with mimicry of more dangerous species. Families will learn about these diverse colors and patterns and what they mean and will meet Animal Ambassadors such as a Fire-bellied toad, a Blue Poison Dart frog, a Dwarf Reticulated python, a Leopard gecko and a chinchilla.
