Crocodiles Invade Bozeman

348

A new, family-friendly exhibit at Museum of the Rockies immerses visitors in the sights, sounds and surroundings of a stealthy aquatic predator: the crocodilian. Come eye-to-eye with living crocodilians such as a Siamese crocodile, an African dwarf crocodile, American alligator hatchlings and an adult American alligator. Learn to speak “croc” in less than five minutes, test your strength against a croc’s powerful bite, try your hand at re-creating a crocodile’s splashy water dance and find out how and why conservationists are working to save crocodilians in the wild. You’ll experience all this and more when you visit “CROCS: Ancient Predators in a Modern World”.

“We want members and visitors to become engaged in the exciting and dynamic world of crocodilians,” says Patrick Leiggi, Director of Paleontology & Exhibits for Museum of the Rockies. “It is a pleasure to bring another Reptiland exhibit to Bozeman, and we anticipate that it will be as popular as our past live-animal exhibitions such as ‘Geckos: Tails to Toepads’ in 2014, ‘Frogs: A Chorus of Colors’ in 2011 and ‘Reptiles: The Beautiful and Deadly’ in 2006.”

“CROCS: Ancient Predators in a Modern World” will be at Museum of the Rockies through September 10, 2017. For information about the exhibit, go to museumoftherockies.org. Check bozemancvb.com to plan your trip to Bozeman
