This month The Robot Zoo exhibition returns to the Horniman Museum and Gardens for the first time since its highly successful UK debut in 2009.

How do chameleons change colour? What makes grasshoppers leap so high? How do bats see at night? Enter this fascinating world and discover the mechanisms that give animals their amazing abilities.

The family-friendly exhibition features larger-than-life animals that have been innovatively recreated using a variety of familiar machine parts and gadgets to reveal how their real life counterparts see, eat, hunt and hide. Interactive exhibits also give visitors the chance to try jet-propelled squid racing, shoot a chameleon’s ‘tongue-gun’ and even design their own ‘mutant’ robot creature.
