With 'Extreme Mammals: The Biggest, Smallest, and Most Amazing Mammals of All Time,' the Academy explores the surprising and often extraordinary world of extinct and living mammals. Featuring spectacular fossils and other specimens from the museum's collections, vivid reconstructions, and live animals, the exhibition examines the ancestry and evolution of numerous species, ranging from huge to tiny, from speedy to sloth-like, and displays animals with oversized claws, fangs, snouts, and horns. Through the use of dynamic media displays, animated computer interactives, hands-on activities, touchable fossils, casts, taxidermy specimens, and a live tree shrew, the exhibition will highlight distinctive mammalian qualities and illuminate the shared ancestry that unites these diverse creatures.
