Let’s see if you have what it takes to survive a year in the life of a hatchling snapping turtle! Compete in our life-size snapping turtle obstacle course where you will have to pretend to be a baby snapping turtle. The course begins as you crawl out of the nest. Once you make it out, you’ll be faced with realistic challenges that young snapping turtles face on a daily basis. Food availability, pollution, predators, and highway traffic are just some of the challenges you may encounter. Join us and see if your luck holds out!
