Description

People have a very narrow of view of evolution and adaptation that says that animals always want to be the strongest, the biggest, and the fastest – that is what helps them compete against other animals and survive. In reality there are many more evolutionary strategies out there than simply being the biggest or fastest and there are just as many advantages to being small and slow. Featuring animals like tortoises and sloths which have survived for millions of years despite being very slow, this exhibit explores the counter-intuitive side of evolution and adaptation.
