Strange Animals of New Jersey

on Sat, 08/24/2013 - 11:14am

Between the Internet and cable TV, we are swimming in information about the lives of animals worldwide. Tonight's talk will focus on New Jersey's strangest creatures, both large and small, in our homes, in our air, on our plants, in our freshwater and along our shore. You will hear oddities and fascinating facts that few people have heard about.

To name a few: invasive species, squirrel migrations, jellyfish and sponges in our lakes, animals that alter their sex at will, large spiders that drape our local bridges and shops with their webs, fireflies in the fall, our state's once-thriving caviar industry, and the weird lifecycle of our solitary wasps. 

John Andrews from the New Jersey Astronomical Association will reveal the stories about these odd local organisms that share our state with us.
