The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History proudly announces the opening of its exhibit, Dog Tales: The Human Canine Connection, on display from November 18 - April 29. This exclusive in-house exhibit showcases the fascinating natural history of dogs, their closest canine relatives, and their special bond with humans.
About The Exhibit:
As the first domesticated animal, dogs have lived with humans throughout all of recorded history, hunting by their side, and guarding their fields and families. Dog Tales: The Human Canine Connection examines the natural history of dogs, their transformation over time, and the close relationship they have with humans both as companions and work partners. Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn about the many different roles dogs play in the service industry, in military & police operations, and in search and rescue missions.
Enjoy beautiful specimens of wolves, coyotes, jackals, and foxes, stunning photographs, cultural artifacts, and interactive displays from the TAMU Visual Arts Program, the Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections, the School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Cushing Memorial Library, the Baylor University Mayborn Museum Complex, and private lenders.
