Curious Creatures NightLife

Octopus

Show your love for the tentacled, the slimy, and the lumpy at this NightLife dedicated to all the curious creatures sometimes overlooked for the fuzzy and cuddly.

-----> Visit the West Garden to meet animal guests from Classroom Safari’s menagerie - including snakes, spiders, and a rather cuddly - but still very curious - two-toed sloth.

-----> Catch a screening of “Spider Seduction,” part of the Lens of Time series produced by Spine Films for bioGraphic. Learn about the high-speed cameras and laser-listening devices used to crack these complex seduction codes with UC Berkeley evolutionary biologist Damian Elias and Spine Films producers.

-----> Meet the biologists who raise and care for our translucent and highly-photogenic moon jellies during a very special Steinhart Aquarium talk.

-----> Examine squid specimens with science writer Danna Staaf, author of Squid Empire, one of Science Friday’s best science books of 2017.

-----> Check out rodent skulls and learn about the ever-growing incisors of the order Rodentia with Zachary Calamari, PhD of Orofacial Sciences at UCSF. And finally, talk to Point Blue Conservation Science and learn why every creature, curious and cute, is critical for healthy ecosystems and a healthy planet.
