The Evolution and Adaptability of Mammals
This unit is comprised of a series of exhibits that look at how mammals have adapted in terms of size, body structure and behavior, to better match their environments. In addition, this area features a variety of mammal specimens. The selected animals are from different continents and climatic zones, and are shown in their simulated natural habitats.
Another exhibit in this unit describes the appearance of early man, and how primates, in tropical rain forest and savanna, gradually evolved the characteristics of upright stance and increased cranial capacity
