Live Animal Exhibit
Inside the Randall Museum
Animal Exhibit, you will
encounter over 100
animals that make their
home in our Museum
because they can no longer
survive in the wild. Some
are injured so they cannot
hunt for food or protect
themselves from predators.
Others were born in captivity or kept as pets so they never learned
how to live in the wild.
These animals help us learn about and appreciate California’s
diverse and disappearing wildlife. Over one hundred and fifty years
ago, much of the Bay Area was wild, providing lots of habitat, or
homes for wild animals. Today, there are more people, less open
space, and fewer plants and animals. We can help animals in the wild
by preserving their remaining habitats.
At this web site, we give you a glimpse at just a few of the amazing
critters we house at the Randall Museum. We will feature many
different animals in the future, so make sure you come back and
visit. Even better, drop by in person to the Animal Exhibit at 199
For information about volunteering with the animals at the Randall
Museum, see the Volunteer page.
