Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Among Us!

Speaker: Professor Rebecca Lai, UNL

When: 7:00pm February 1, 2017

Location: Adele Hall Learning Commons

Description: There are animals in our world with "magical properties" like the fantastic beasts in Harry Potter's world. While augureys are known to predict rainfall, there are equally powerful weather-forecasting and earthquake-predicting animals among us. And like wizards strategically utilize demiguise hair to make invisibility cloaks, our scientists utilizing scorpion, bee, and snake venom for cancer treatments and incorporate snail secretions in anti-aging face creams. This presentation will provide a comparison between several notable fantastic beasts in Harry's world and a few of our more magical earthly creatures.
