Did You Know?


Squids actually do get almost as large as depicted in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The Giant Squid can grow to be over 40 feet long. And the recently discovered Colossal squid can grow to be over 45 feet long and has almost twice the mass of the giant squid. However neither of these species had yet been officially documented in 1892. See more »


When Alexander Sweet is giving a lecture on canids, he states that the household dog is "Canis lupus familaris." Yet, that trinomial term was not used until 2005, until which time the scientific name for a dog was just C. lupus. See more »

Dracula makes a grand entry and this show keeps adding brilliant characters. Christian Carmago looks fantastic as Count Dracula. Dr.Jekylmakes an entry and Shazad looks perfectly cast. Harry Treadway and Eva Green play put their characters beautifully..The inclusion of Patti Lipuone as the psychiatrist makes the show even more fantastic
