WITH THE KIDS

Fearsome Symmetry

January 31, 2008

With the world's tiger population sagging to fewer than 7,000, now's the time to learn about and preserve this rare species of big cat. The Discovery Science Center provides children ages 3 to 17 with a hands-on, high-tech window into the world of the Bengal tiger at Tigers: Tracking a Legend, an exhibit blending biology, ecology and natural history to tell the story of a tiger family in India's Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve. Learn how a tiger hunts, examine its interior anatomy and talk like a tiger using an infrasound voice simulator. "It's more than just the art and the beauty of the tiger," says science center spokeswoman Julie Smith. "There's a lot of science behind it too." Fri. through May 1, Santa Ana. $12.95 adults, $9.95 children 3-17, children 2 and younger free. (714) 542-2823; www.discoverycube.org
