The animal kingdom is vibrant and diverse. Animals have all kinds of weapons to help them win the object of their desire, along with a wealth of different behavior patterns, pairings, and family models. But why? Because the different interests of the sexes are what drives evolution.
In this special exhibition at the Naturhistorisches Museum Basel (Natural History Museum), you can learn about the role that sex plays in reproduction, as well as the lengths animals will go to to breed. They turn on the charm with their best displays and most splendid plumage. In the survival of the fittest, animals fearlessly fight off the competition with the ultimate aim of becoming attentive parents who watch over their young. But there isn’t a clear pattern to their roles—the animal kingdom is ahead of its time and has always had different family models.
On this afternoon, there will be a guided tour in English of this special exhibition.
Cost of the tour is included in the entrance fee.
