MEET THE RESEARCHERS
Friday, February 7th from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Why are kangaroo rats in the Mojave the most awesome rodent? They are, because they can defend themselves against deadly rattlesnakes with flying leaps and mid-air kicks that would put the fastest ninjas to shame! You're invited to meet two researchers from San Diego State University who are dedicated to understanding all the intricate details of the predator-prey relationship between rattlesnakes and kangaroo rats. They will discuss some of the many traits that allow these hopping dynamos to avoid the serpent’s tooth. Come with questions! This informal meet-up at the Hi-Desert Nature Museum is open to all, as is the talk, Self Defense in the Desert , at the Indian Cove campground amphitheater in Joshua Tree National Park (Friday, February 7th at 7:30 p.m.).
