Prior to the start of the 12 Days of Science, Darren from our Animal Husbandry staff was hard at work getting our wood turtle habitat ready.
Hard to grab a good picture with all this sunshine, but here you see Darren from Animal Husbandry (he's a person, not just a leg) putting down a base layer of substrate for our new #woodturtle habitat. The tank has a lot of mass to fill so the substrate Darren is using is pretty big. We can't wait to see how it looks when it's done! #libertysciencecenter #jerseycity #hoboken #newark #nyc #bayonne #LibertyStatePark
