This second annual event gives guests an opportunity to see some of nature’s most interesting animals from a whole new perspective with rhinocero's legs, whale ribs, tigers and bears. The event will include a silent auction, live music, food trucks, raffles and bone dig. This year, new events include stump the expert and a Monster Mash Dance-Off for kids.

Proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction benefit the Davis Arboretum, AU Museum of Natural History and the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology.
