Sexual Nature: the Museum of Natural History, London


Feb 19, 2011
Hi everyone,

Although I have not yet had a chance to visit it, there is a brand new exhibition at the Natural History Museum entitled "Sexual Nature".

The promo from the museum goes something like this:

"Anything goes in the animal kingdom, so leave your preconceptions at the door and undress the science of sex in this stimulating exhibition.

Explore sexual selection and different mating systems as you encounter fascinating Museum specimens, live creatures and witness dramatic BBC wildlife footage and other revealing films. The exhibition contains specimens and specially commissioned exhibits that have never been on public display before."

I summarize some of the more interesting exhibits here:

Anybody from the UK (or visitors to the UK) seeing this? Impressions?
