Natural History Museum opens Animal Record-Breakers exhibition

The Natural History Museum at Tring, Hertfordshire, presents Animal Record-Breakers, an exhibition on view from 6 February to 8 July 2012.

Get ready for London’s 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and brush-up on your facts about animal champions in this free exhibition. It is filled with fun activities and games, such as comparing your target practice skills with those of the archerfish, which can spit water 1.5m through the air to hit insects with deadly accuracy.

‘Every 4 years we watch and marvel as our own species competes for Olympic gold,’ says Alice Adams, Interpretation and Learning Manager at the Museum at Tring.

‘But the animals featured throughout the exhibition have adapted these amazing skills for survival, and some of the skills are sure to be surprising.’

The Animal Record-Breakers exhibition is based on the Natural History Museum book Animal Records by Mark Carwardine.
