Here, both campers and counselors ponder the reasons for adaptive morphology as it relates mammal skeletons.
A bear skull, one of the way cool teaching aids instructor Steve Rice brought to show us.
Here Steve explains how a bear uses it teeth for feeding and defense.
Another specimen used to discuss how animals survive by using their "fangs and fur".
Holding a walrus tusk, Steve asks the question: "Why such a big tooth? What it is used for? Biting? Chewing? Defense?"
With tusk in hand, Steve mimics the scraping action a Walrus uses while foraging for plant life to feed on.
This demonstration shows how some mammals use their fore limbs for walking on all fours.
