People often associate bats, spiders, and snakes with fear, but they are fascinating animals that benefit humans. Join us at the Anniston Museum of Natural History as we discover book lungs, new senses (did you know there are more than 5?!), and a fiber that is an engineering marvel through artifacts and hands-on activities. You may even walk away with a new appreciation for these animals.
