Sneaky, sneaky! Over time, certain animals have evolved unique adaptations to trick their foes. Through the use of camouflage, warning colors, and downright cunning behaviors, these animals have found ways to survive in a competitive world. We’ll cover these various methods of trickery using native CT animals as examples. You’ll even get to meet a couple live ambassadors! NOTE: There are two different versions of this program for an outreach: the “tech” version and the “non-tech” version. If your facility has access to a screen/projector or Smartboard, we’ll present the “tech” version that includes a slide/video presentation. Otherwise, the “non-tech” version uses natural props and printed pictures. Both versions include live animals.
