“Mom? Why is that dog sniffing that other dog’s butt?” It ain’t pretty, people, but questions like this are a reality for those with children. Along with inquiries about why cows chew cud all the time, why dung beetles love dung, and just what the hell is snail and slug slime anyway? Discovery Science Center investigates nature’s ickiest topics—in the most fun ways possible, of course. You and your kids can meet some of the stinkiest and slimiest creatures that inhabit the earth through tons of interactive exhibits that entertain and educate—and just in time for summer! After a visit to “Animal Grossology,” you’ll finally be able to answer your kid the next time he inquires about tapeworms, leeches and why Kitty hacks up furballs. Hey, he’s learning , isn’t he?
May 23-Sept. 7, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
