It's our first SmartBar of 2015 and it’s going to make you queasy.
Our experts will be out with diseased body parts, venomous critters, mysterious tales of heart-stopping poisons and stories on the disarming fictions of leprosy.
See live leech feeding and have a meet and greet with some of the live animals that call Melbourne Museum home including Olive the Murray Python.
Get hooked up to an electrocardiograph (ECG) as it records the sound of your heart while jazz musicians turn it into a tune.
Check out the first taipan that was milked for venom and hear the story of the animal biting and killing the very famous herpetologist (Kevin Budden) who collected it.
Our expert stars of the night:
Program partners: 3RRR FM and the Museum of Human Disease
