Why are there males and females at all, or why do some fight, sing or dance for the others - these are the questions addressed in the new special exhibition "sexperten - flotte bienen und tolle hechte" (sexperts - smart bees and great pikes) at the Solothurn Museum of Nature.
Courtship, mating and raising offspring - important phases in the life of an animal. The range of strategies chosen is very diverse and varies from species to species.
Various animal specimens, models and films provide an insight into the lives of experts in sex - sex experts, that is. The offspring of wolves, raccoons and ostriches provide the jöh effect.
The exhibition was created as a joint project of the Office for the Environment of the Principality of Liechtenstein and the Liechtenstein National Museum and will be on display at the Naturmuseum Solothurn from May 12 to October 23, 2022.
