It’s not easy being green… But it’s awesome being yellow. Or red. Or orange, black, and white. In the natural world, many different animal species use bright colors and patterns to advertise the fact that they would make a horrible snack.
At the American Museum of Natural History’s exhibition, THE POWER OF POISON, you’ll learn how certain colors may signal that an animal is poisonous or venomous. These warning colors are good for both predators and prey and can be seen in a variety of species, ranging from moths to mammals, across the animal kingdom.

Major funding for the exhibition has been provided by the
LILA WALLACE – READER’S DIGEST ENDOWMENT FUND.
