CHOW TIME IN THE AQUARIUM
Pittsfield, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
Every Saturday! Join our staff in the aquarium for an interactive look at what it takes to feed some of Berkshire Museum’s most interesting residents. With your help we’ll prepare some heaping salads for some of our largest reptiles as we discuss what the aquarium animals eat here in the museum and what they would find in the wild. Once all the food is prepared, watch as aquarium staff goes behind the scenes to feed the reptiles and fish. See the seahorses suck up tiny shrimp and watch as the tortoises devour the salads you helped make just minutes before. In between feedings we’ll talk more about each species and what they’re eating, as well as answer many questions you might have, like what exactly is a skink and why is it eating a monkey biscuit! Berkshire Museum, 39 South Street, Pittsfield MA, 01201 Included with cost of admission to the Museum.
