It's Spa Time - for our Animals

While the nature center is closed, our animals have been enjoying some time to relax and soak!

  • Soaking helps to re-hydrate our Box turtle and Foxsnake, after a winter of decreased activity. 
  • Warm water soaks also help to "wake them up", bringing their temperature up and increasing their metabolism since they are cold-blooded.

We will continue to give our two reptiles a chance to soak, and get out of their habitats for exercise, during our closure.

Stay tuned for more posts about their indoor adventures!
