Event details

Does a box turtle eat the same thing as a snapping turtle? What does a snake eat? Join naturalists as we feed the nature center’s animals and learn who eats what and why. We’ll talk about carnivores, herbivores, grazers and opportunistic eaters. In addition to fruits, vegetables and leafy greens, this program will also include feeding live insects and frozen, thawed mice.
