The Animal Attractions Exhibit is live and on the wall at the Steinhart Aquarium, featuring the iPad app I was part of developing. This exhibit provides interactive signage, video and stories of the few dozen specimens in 18 tanks.
The exhibits focuses on the unusual courtship, relationship and mating habits of different animals, from scorpions and a coconut octopus to the and common garden snail with their rapey “love darts.”
The Steinhart Aquarium had this to say: “Enter and discover the surprising secrets of meeting, mating and repopulating. The colorful and diverse beauty of the natural world would not exist without the mixing and passing of genes.”
