The Hunger Games Catching Fire teen event on November 7th is coming soon! Ever wonder about the science behind the strange fictional creatures seen in the Hunger Games arena? These creatures are something called Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO's. The gene sequences of these strange creatures have been deliberately tampered with to create unique and sometimes terrifying animals. In Catching Fire, The Capitol creates a hybrid bird called a JabberJay, meant to be a spy among the common people of the 12 districts. When released into the wild, the JabberJays mated with Mockingbirds, to create the MockingJay, which will repeat whatever it hears. Although in reality it wouldn't be possible for Mockingbirds and Jays to mate, there is some truth in the reference about Mockingbirds being great mimics. Appropriately named as a bird that 'mocks' the calls of other birds, reptiles, amphibians and even man-made sounds like car alarms, a single male Mockingbird can have up to 200 songs in its song repertoire! See you at the event!
