Riotously colorful bacteria and mobile mosses meet carnivorous plants and rotting carcasses in this impressionistic journey through the Life Sciences area at the Exploratorium. Animals are a source of energy-rich food even after they die. Here we can see beetles, flies, bacteria, and other organisms feasting on carcasses. Watch the process of a deceased monitor lizard providing energy for other organisms to live in this time-lapse video. Look for this exhibit in the museum, upstairs in the Traits of Life area.
