Amazing Animal Adaptations

Visit our World Wildlife Gallery and see our famous gorilla specimen, Alfred. If you are 5-11 years old, you’ll love our new, fun, interactive family activity area where you can find out about how animals have adapted in amazing ways to live in their environment. Compare your hand with a hand cast of a real gorilla, try and spot the camouflaged animals and add to our display of your favourite amazing animals.
