Salmon in a tree and other quirky biology questions

April 8, 2013

Salmon in a Tree? What happened at the garter snake ball?

Why do female hyenas have a penis? Why do pitcher plants like having bats sleep over?

These and other quirky biological questions will be answered on April 11 during a showcase of 13 videos all created by first-year biology students.

The April 11 showcase runs 6:30-8:30pm, in the Alumni Theatre located in the Clock Tower building. Anyone can attend, including the general Kamloops community.

There will be no admission charge, free popcorn, door prizes, and the opportunity to vote for your favourite video. The fan favourite will receive the coveted Viewer’s Choice Award.

Each of the 13 mini-movies be projected onto a large screen, with most of them running about five minutes in duration and involving more than one student.

In all, 48 videos were created and the better ones selected for this second-annual showcase.
