Anyone interested in what goes on behind the scenes in the vivarium may want to check out a clip filmed minutes ago on Steve’s phone. After the response of the Iguana footage shown live, we thought it might be a nice idea to give a quick overview of a few other animals we have in the collection and what’s going on so you can ask us some questions and have them answered live. It’s not great quality and also not exhaustive, but hopefully there is enough to let you know what we’re doing. So, literally anything you would like to see or find out about please just get in touch and we’ll make a short video clip and try and answer as many of your questions as possible. Your answer will also feature on Youtube and in the ‘Live’ section (at the top of the blog).
Of course I can’t talk about all these different species without mentioning the author of The Origin of The Species – Charles Darwin, and our superb new exhibition based on his life, which opens tomorrow: (http://www.museum.manchester.ac.uk/whatson/exhibitions/theevolutionist/)
