About The Event
This exciting and interactive program introduces guests to our native warm-blooded vertebrates: Maine mammals. We will study a mounted animal and observes its characteristics, such as teeth, feet, and fur. We use these observations as clues to understanding each mammal’s adaptations, niche, and habitat. A collection of skulls, study skins, and other specimens complements a discussion of adaptations and the role each animal plays in the food web. This program also provides a living example of a non-releasable wild mammal (a possum). Join 7 Lakes for another informational talk brought to us by Chewonki Natural History Program.
