Science Saturday: Predators: The Whole Tooth-and-Claw Story

  • Saturday, January 02, 2016
  • 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Book cover for Predators: The Whole Tooth-and-Claw Story by Glenn Murphy

Why do tigers have stripes (rather than spots)?
Why do vultures eat dead things? Why can’t dogs climb trees?

Bestselling popular science author Glenn Murphy talks about his journey from geeky schoolkid to international science communicator, and presents snippets of his latest book, “Predators: the Whole Tooth-and-Claw Story.”

This live, interactive show features a special, furry guest from the Conservators Center. Ideal for middle schoolers. Not to be missed!
