Win tickets to see "Skulls" at the California Academy of Sciences!

Add your comment

Every skull tells a story, revealing how vertebrate animals live, die, and ultimately, evolve. In Skulls, the new exhibit at San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences, you can walk along a wallscape of sea lion skulls, watch a live colony of dermestid beetles demonstrate their “bone cleaner” skills, and learn how scientists use the Academy’s vast collection of skulls to uncover clues about life on Earth.
