Twilight World takes you on a weird and wonderful journey through an indoor exhibit where night and day have been reversed. You begin your journey in a dusky desert at sunset – where you can see sand cats, mongoose and the critically endangered Turkish spiny mice. You then follow the path through a nocturnal forest, home to our rare family of aye ayes, owl monkeys, two-toed sloths and a host of other unusual creatures of the night.
Next, venture into the underground home of fascinating creatures such as the blind naked mole rat. Your journey ends at ‘dawn’ in a creaking old town house, home to dozens of tiny house mice and black and brown rats.
All the displays in Twilight World make full use of light, sound, humidity and smell to help recreate natural habitats.
