A variety of wildlife inhabits the Universeum's re-created rainforest, which features an Anaconda Swamp, a Frog Forest, a species of endangered monkeys and more. The artificial rainforest resembles a real one well enough to make some of the species that are more picky breeders produce offspring at very high levels!

One of the most prolific artists of the last century, Bob Dylan is singer/songwriter and guitarist who first rose to recognition as a fixture of New York City's folk scene during the 1960s. With politically-charged lyrics and no concern for the conventions of folk or pop music, he became a highly influential figure of the counterculture in the US as he document the nation's social unrest through his songs. Though he invited criticism by using electronic instruments to create his brand of folk, his revolutionary songwriting style, particularly on the celebrated single "Like A Rolling Stone,"and his fearless combinations of rock and roll, blues, gospel, jazz and traditional folk profoundly shaped popular culture and continues to hold weight in today's ever-shifting music world.

Sebastian Philip Bierk is a heavy metal vocalist from Canada who performs and releases music under the moniker Sebastian Bach. After playing in a number of short-lived metal outfits, Bach joined Skid Row as lead vocalist in 1987 once Matt Fallon left the band.

The new project recorded a self-titled LP and released it in 1998 with Deal's label, Nice Records.

Often referred to as the "godmother of punk," Patti Smith has lived a full life and contributed a dutiful load to the evolution of music in the 20th century. Getting her start in the mid-1970s, during the gestation of punk rock, Smith combined her adept spoken word work with simple, no frills, three-chord song progressions to create a realized proto-punk sound. But her songs weren't about causing havoc; rather, they were about elevating yourself and gaining an education to contribute something vital to society. Smith is still at it and even though her old New York City haunts (Max's Kansas City and CBGB's) have withered away, the iconic singer/songwriter is still going strong.
