Animal Grossology game

It’s yucky, icky and oh my gross! It’s the newest exhibit at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas - Animal Grossology, the science of creatures gross and disgusting. Do you want to learn cool gross facts about animals?  Did you know cows, goats and camel were considered cud munchers, which means they eat their own vomit.  Ewww, so icky. The term for this type of animal is called a ruminant. Our Grossology exhibit has all kinds of interesting facts and interactive games you can play while learning about animals.  You can try your luck at the slime game, and mix up blood at Transfusion Confusion.  If you’re brave get a whiff of smells at Sense The Scents. Take a slide in the Underwater Adventure and steer a submarine. You can also get a bird’s eye view of the entire exhibit with the telescopic camera lens in the submarine.  Over at the Chew Chew Express you can see inside a cow’s mid-section and how his digestion works. Watch out though - this guy gets a little gassy! This exhibit has got it all, from the cold-blooded, slimy skinned amphibians, to the scarab dung beetle and even manure! I just know your kids are going to love this exhibit. What kid doesn’t get a kick out of all the things that might gross their parents out?  Animal Grossology takes on a different view of the Animal Kingdom. You get real facts about science through fun interactive entertainment while learning. I will warn you though that you will experience some of the stinkiest, slimiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth. But it’s all in big fun! You won’t even notice that you’re playing with poop.  The exhibit is now open at the Aquarium and it’s free with admission! Bring the family to see icky, stinky, and oh so yucky gross, but cool stuff at Animal Grossology!
