Bizarre Beasts

Long-Nosed Chimaera

     Armored fish, tusked mammals and gigantic "terror birds." That's a short recap of the weird animals in the hands-on exhibit "Bizarre Beasts: Past and Present," now at the National Geographic Museum.

Some pretty strange creatures -- all of which crawled, ran, swam or flew on planet Earth at some time -- are to be found here. There are dinosaur skeletons and touchable fossils and models. Learn how animals adapted as their environment changed. Check out the model of the whorl-tooth shark (pictured). You can even make a rubbing of a fossil to take with you. (But don't try to take that shark home!)
