We caught a preview of the new exhibit at Fernbank Museum of Natural History – EXTREME MAMMALS! This awesome exhibit goes through the evolution of how mammals came to be! We are one diverse group, we come in all sizes, shapes, coverings and live in all kinds of habitats! We make up one special class, so we’re giving out class superlatives to take you through this amazing exhibit!

Let’s Meet the Ellie and Edmond Extreme Mammal Class Superlatives!

We had such a blast exploring and learning about mammals through time! These stand out stars are just the tip of the iceberg (we didn’t want to give away the whole exhibit)!

Make sure you take your bipedal mammal self over to catch EXTREME MAMMALS at Fernbank and learn all about mammals of the past and present! And  who knows you might decide if you humans are  extreme mammals too :)!

  1. This looks like A LOT of fun. The captions were hilarious! I was hoping a dog would win for best nose (sorry Ellie). Once my nose found an empty potato chip bag under the snow! Plus Mom says it looks like a gum drop.
