How can you tell if it is a boy horseshoe crabs?
This is the one of many questions the girls asked. Today we went to Oatland Island and the fee to enter was free. There were lots of volunteers to teach about the wetlands. We learned about crabs, sharks, and fish. The kids learned that boy horseshoe crabs have boxer gloves on their front legs. They use there back legs to dig and move the dirt, they have gills, and live in salt water. The girls got to throw a ghost net that’s used to catch shrimp.
We also walked around and looked at all the other animals, fox, owl, and deer to name a few. We got to pet a baby alligator and a possum. We did a scavenger hunt about the wetlands. After we were hot and tired we came home and went swimming.
