The 'Bio-Wall' houses hundreds of creatures and by using a mixture of touch screen technology and hands-on investigations, visitors can investigate these animals and find out where they live and how they survive in such extreme places as the arctic and desert. Integrated into this major display are live animal tanks and aquaria where visitors can see tropical fish, pythons, lizards and leaf cutting ants to name a few. See a full size model of an elephant, a great white shark, a virtual aquarium, live animal displays and polar bear. The space also includes a display on skeletons and invertebrates.Great North Museum: Hancock
