This month, we’re exploring the continent of Africa! Africa is the second largest continent on the planet and is made up of very diverse habitats including rainforests, grasslands and mountains. It also has the largest hot desert in the world, the Sahara, and the world’s longest river, the Nile.
Look for these and more African species as you tour both buildings.
