Predators on display.

"Predators-The Exhibit" is 2,400 square feet of hands-on, interactive family fun. This self-contained educational exhibit featured at the Greenville Mall January 15 to April 15 offers a look into the lives of some of the most dangerous animals that have ever inhabited our planet.

Divided into three life zones-water, air, and land-visitors can discover what house cats and saber-toothed tigers have in common; study a T. rex skull; learn how predators like sharks, hawks, and bears hone their senses and track, capture, and kill their prey; what, role their environment plays; and, what it may be like to be the prey.

"The exhibit focuses on contemporary and prehistoric predators from all over the world, but with a main focus on North America," explains Dr. Lee Engel, volunteer museum coordinator and board member of the exhibit's sponsoring organization, the Delta Children's Museum.
