Millennia ago humans began sharing their meals with wolves. Now we couldn’t live without our pets.
It turns out that whether we see an animal as a pet, a pest, or food has changed over time and across cultures, making our relationships with them dynamic and complex.
The interactive exhibit explans:
- From the ancient outdoors to our modern livingrooms, how wild animals became our pets
- How humans created pests, from roaches to pigeons to rats
- The changing human meal and how it affects the animals we live with
The museum in Balboa Park is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
