Nature Cubs: Zoo-per Heroes

cheetah

From super strength and speed to (nearly) X-ray vision, there’s no end to the incredible abilities of the Smithsonian's National Zoo’s superman-imals! Learn about the most amazing zoo-per heroes of the animal kingdom, and make your own zoo-per hero cape to take home!

Nature Cubs preschool classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play, animal artifacts and exciting Zoo walks to engage your preschooler's sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world. There is no animal contact or behind-the-scenes access in Nature Cubs classes.
