Maybe you can find your toxic ex here.
This December, Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum will be having gallery tours about nature’s small yet terrifying creatures — parasites.
The exhibition titled Body Snatchers, is split into three ecosystems of water, land, and air. It seeks to shine light on the various types of parasites that exist in nature, from those that feed off animals to those living on humans, as well as show that maybe parasites — while annoying — may actually be useful to the planet.
To give a sneak peek of what to expect, you will be able to find out more about how tapeworms end up in the intestines of human beings, closely view the world’s first parasite to replace an organ, and finally identify the possible cause of why your scalp has been itching for the past week.
Apart from seeing actual taxidermic parasites close-up in jars and informative backstories explaining why they do what they do, the exhibition also showcases related works of local artists such as art installations and digital animations.
Gallery tours are available from Dec 1 to 12, and it will be open 10am to 6pm from Tuesday to Sunday, with last admission at 4:30pm.
The Outreach and Education team will be your host in showing you around through the Biodiversity and Heritage Galleries to bring you back in time to learn more about parasites that existed during the age of the dinosaurs.
You will also receive a goodie bag and stand a chance to redeem a limited-edition Body Snatchers shirt, while stocks last.
