Play predator/prey top trumps as the children make themselves into food chains. Hunt out the predators and prey from the museum’s collections. Examine skulls of local animals and sort them into herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Get up close with an owl’s lunch and write a menu from the teeth you find. Use environmental data to explore how humans have affected the fate of some of Warwickshire’s most at-risk species. An optional one hour self-led tour of Priory Park is available to make your visit a full day trip.
