A panel looks at the dynamic of predator and prey.
This is demonstrated in the next diorama, an encounter between wolves and bison.
In front of this diorama at the moment, presumably moved to allow easier movement through the nearby passage where they usually are as a social distancing measure, are two display cases with animals, both of which have formidable defensive measures. Such as the skunk.
And the porcupine.
Today I leave off with this panel on mammal diet.
Being huge didn´t help against the pack, huh. The skunk looks (!) cute.ReplyDelete
I also like the skunk he looks cute, I only saw them in a zoo.ReplyDelete

The skunk reminds me of a camping trip I took moons ago. :-)ReplyDelete

Another exhibit I would find fascinating and could lose myself for a couple of hours. Thanks William!ReplyDelete
I do love the moose!ReplyDelete
The prey grocery list. Interesting.ReplyDelete
I think so.Delete
It's a scary thing seeing a face off between creatures in the wild ✨ The moose is such a magnificent looking beast.ReplyDelete

usually only smell a skunk ..never, thankfully seen one in person. take that back ... i just remember a story ...camping out ... late night walk to the restroom and i saw one, or what i thought was one that ran or went into a storm drain to get away from me ... so thankfully he/she didn't spray me ... praise the heavens. i joke that my hubby was not there to save ...can you imagine the mess that would have been??! no clue how you get rid of the smell in that situation. i wouldn't wanna be in the truck, trailer, or any where. gross. lol.
