Scientist Kenneth Catania unlocks the secrets behind some of nature’s most astounding animals.

About this event

From star-nosed moles that have super-sensing snouts to electric eels that paralyse their prey, animals possess unique and extraordinary abilities.

Kenneth Catania, author of Great Adaptations, will take an entertaining and engaging look at some of nature’s most remarkable creatures. Kenneth has spent his career conducting biological detective work to solve the mysteries behind tentacled snakes, tiny shrews, zombie-making wasps, and more.

He will show not only how studying these animals can provide deep insights into how life evolved, but also how scientific discovery can be filled with adventure and fun. Join him for a wondrous journey into nature’s grand designs.
