By Events | No Comments


During the period November 2014 – October 2015, Danube Delta Ecotourism Museum Center, November 14 Street no. 1, the public is invited to view the temporary exhibition He and She in the animal world, organized in partnership with Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History Bucharest.

Exhibits are mammals, birds, amphibians and insects belonging to the collections of the organizers.


What the organizers say:

In the animal world, there are always the HE and SHE, male and female, the two precursors of life.

Sex differences varies greatly from species to species, but are found within the same species also. These differences appear to be an adaptation to sexual selection, reflected in colors and exotic plumage or in battles for dominance reflected in the size or the presence of body parts used in these confrontations.

In terms of size and behavior differences between male and female varies, but without rule. In insects, spiders, fish, birds of prey and mammals, there are species in which females are larger than males. In some species, the male contribution ends when mating, whereas in others, the male takes care of the offspring.

The exhibition includes 36 pairs of the various species and living environments … some of couples of the living world in which we find differences between male and female.
