The Museum’s Animal Ambassadors

What would you expect to see at the Delaware Museum of Natural History? What about a live ball python or sun conure?

Many visitors to DMNH are surprised to see live animals in a natural history museum, but they are there for an important reason. Encounters with live animals are valuable learning opportunities for children and adults. That’s why the animals are called Ambassador Animals. They are ambassadors for their species and can help people connect with all live animals, resulting in a desire to protect these incredible animals and their homes. ​
