The felines are exhibited at the National Museum of Natural History


STORY - Lions, cats, tigers and company enjoy a royal staging at the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution, until January 7, 2024.

They bask on innumerable sofas, sometimes deign to catch mice, walk on the roofs of cities after dark... Cats seem to be perfectly acclimatized to their life in contact with people, but not all felines have not been able to derive the same benefit from the rise of

Homo sapiens.

 The National Museum of Natural History is devoting a temporary exhibition to them for the first time, commensurate with the fascination they inspire in us.

The idea for this exhibition came to us after having collected many specimens, notably from the feline park in Seine-et-Marne,

explains Géraldine Veron, scientific curator of the exhibition.

We know that the subject is attractive.

Cats, but also lions or tigers, are regularly mentioned among the favorite animals.

But they are nevertheless very fragile and very often poorly known animals.

From the start, the visitor is struck by the realism of the naturalization of many specimens.
