Nature's Nightshift: Nocturnal Animals
September 12th at 1pm
We will welcome the public, but please RSVP.
A wonderful introduction to Maine’s creatures of the night. How does a bat find thousands of tiny mosquitoes in the dark? Why would an opossum choose to lumber around at night? How does a porcupine defend himself against a predator? How can an owl see its way through the forest? Wild animals continue their hard work, even as we sleep. Using live animals and hands-on materials we will answer these questions and find out how nocturnal mammals utilize all of their senses to find food and shelter at night. Our beautiful live non-releasable animal ambassadors will also demonstrate some unique adaptations these animals have to be observed up close.
