Nature's Ninjas

Meet creatures that utilize some unusual and amazing defensive strategies to ward off predators and protect themselves. Our special demonstrations bring you eye to eye with a variety of live animals from around the world!

  • that in order to protect their colony, one kind of ant will literally blow itself up spraying toxic chemicals onto would-be predators that horned lizards shoot blood out of their eyes to ward off predators?
