Form & Function

Anyone who can appreciate the natural wonders of the living world demonstrates a curiosity for how and why living things grow, behave, and function. The Form & Function exhibit encourages our guests to observe and question the habits, behaviors, colors, and shapes of our resident organisms and how these features might benefit an organism in their environments.

For instance, body shape and scale color can play a major role in determining a fish’s habitat, diet, and hunting strategy. The bubble-shaped Form & Function exhibit offers a magnified view of the distinguishing features of fish, such as Anthias and black-and-white butterflyfish (Heniochus acuminatus).
