Turtle laser tag! The western painted turtle recovery team uses creative activities like this to enrich the lives of the young turtles in our headstarting tanks. Other areas of the tanks have floating vegetation for further enrichment but this open area is perfect for exercise while they grow big and strong enough to join previously released turtles in the wild.
So far, in the exercise portion of the activities, our high score is having five turtles chasing the pointer at once. Gotta catch them all!
