Noon-4 p.m.


Wagner Free Institute of Science 1700

W. Montgomery Ave.



Are fangs creepy or cool? Attendees to a presentation featured at the Wagner Free Institute of Science will be asked just that as they are shown live animals from the Elmwood Park Zoo. At this time of year when bats, werewolves and vampires seem to be everywhere, the Wagner institute will host an open house to learn about the power and purpose of fangs. People will have the opportunity–if they dare–to examine the fangs of live animals including alligators, tarantulas, bats and snakes. After examining long-toothed friends, guests will have the opportunity to explore the Wagner Institute’s collection to find more fanged creatures. Children are welcome to participate in hands-on activities with natural history specimens and Halloween craft making to take home for holiday decorations.
