The Answer

The question in this edition is:

What fundamental principle of science is featured in the Amazon Adventure IMAX movie?

The answer: Evolution

Peter Bates is the scientist featured in the new IMAX movie, Amazon Adventure. The son of sock makers, he left home at 23 to explore the Amazon rainforests. His goal was to find evidence that supported Darwin’s theory of evolution. Bates spent 11 years in the Amazon, discovered 8,000 new species, and discovered the phenomenon of mimicry – where a toxic animal is mimicked by a non-toxic animal in order to scare away predators. Read more about the amazing adventures of Peter Bates and his contribution to the theory of evolution.
