SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A new exhibit opening Saturday at the Natural History Museum of Utah will showcase the largest and smallest mammals that ever existed, as well as those with unique features like oversized claws and large fangs.

Officials announced Monday the new exhibit titled “Extreme Mammals” will run through July 26.

The exhibit will have nine sections that describe mammals and their 200-million year history, and include interactive computer displays, hands-on activities and touchable fossils.

Animals featured though skeletons, taxidermy and reconstructions include a bat the size of a bee and a 15-foot-high extinct animal related to the rhinoceros.

The exhibit was created by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and Utah’s version will include 15 species from the state that are part of the museum’s permanent collection.
