Survivors: Beautiful and Extreme Adaptations

(special limited-time exhibit)

Date: February 1 - September 14, 2014

Deadly poison. Killer punches. Looking like a rock and hoping for the best.

Welcome to the world of Survivors: Beautiful and Extreme Adaptations — a new limited-time exhibit running from Feb. 1 - Sept. 14, 2014 in The Aquarium at Mote Marine Laboratory that will reveal what it takes to make a living as a marine animal or amphibian in today’s world.

Featuring the peacock mantis shrimp, whose punch packs the power of a .22-caliber bullet, the blue-ringed octopus, which has some of the strongest venom on Earth, and many other stunning survivors — including the first frogs ever displayed at Mote — the exhibit will reveal how animals are shaped by their environments.

Visiting Survivors is free with paid admission to The Aquarium. (Mote Members always get in free.) Pricing at mote.org/visit
