Mammals of Maine: From Mice to Moose is an exciting and interactive program introducing guests to native warm-blooded vertebrates: Maine mammals. We will study a mounted animal and observes its characteristics, such as teeth, feet, and fur. We use these observations as clues to understanding each mammal’s adaptations, niche, and habitat. A collection of skulls, study skins, and other specimens complements a discussion of adaptations and the role each animal plays in the food web. Ages 4-12.
