A miniature Betty White in a safari suit appears to sit in a notch of a rock to explain the habits of the very real spotted skunk running around below. The illusion of a vampire bat hangs near a visitor's shoulder as well as inside protective glass, and touching a blank glass wall produces surprise images of everything from a bear to--yechht!--a cockroach. Nearby, the Zooputer quizzes the visitor who has just pressed a button summoning a photo of a chuckwalla lizard: "What lunches on the chuckwalla?"

At first glance, the brochure looks like a promotion for the Nature Conservancy or Cousteau Society--its slick cover is an artistic swirl of aqua ocean waves gently bearing the word Symbiosis .
