New York “Superheroes” Arrive
By Jesús Aguado
No, neither Superman, Batman, nor the Avengers are coming to Parque Bicentenario, but creatures with just as impressive powers are.
Having recently welcomed a popular national exhibit of Tutankamon artifact replicas, the Parque Bicentenario has brought yet another traveling exhibition to its halls, one created by the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and highlighting animals with evolutionary powers of survival in some of the Earth’s most inhospitable environments.
.Nature’s Superheroes: Life at the Limits teaches visitors how different species have used evolutionary strategies to survive in extreme habitats. Adaptation to reproduction, eating, movement, and breathing methods have allowed these species to thrive despite the harsh environmental conditions in which they live.
The exhibit opened November 1 and runs until March 2020. Various live animals will be on display, as will life-sized reproductions and interactive educational displays.
The park is open daily to the general public from 10am–8pm. Admission is 25 pesos. Children, the elderly, and students pay only 10 pesos.
