Can we really see everything that goes on in our environment?

This show, featuring live animals, shows there is a world only visible to certain reptiles and invertebrates.

Pupils will discover how scientific research by Professor Richard Fortey of the Natural History Museum uncovered the earliest-known eye.

They will see that eye adaptations in snakes, iguanas and the preying mantis allow individuals to escape predators and locate prey.

We find out that bees and butterflies can detect ultraviolet light, which helps the process of pollination.

Finally, we will end on a mystery: why do scorpions glow in ultraviolet light?
