Coastal Critters 

What animals and seaweeds can you find in New Hampshire tide pools and coastal zones? Meet these animals up close and learn about the interesting and sometimes strange adaptations (suction cups, claws, tentacles) they use to capture their prey, move or defend themselves.

The North American Lobster

Lobsters are mysterious looking creatures that live on the ocean floor. Learn about how lobsters move, how they use their big claws to eat, and how they protect themselves.

Turtle Time with Raspberry

What turtles live here in New Hampshire and what is the difference between land and sea turtles? Meet Raspberry, a 3-Toed Box Turtle, to learn more about body parts that all turtles have in common, what they like to eat, why we think they are so special, and what you can do to help keep them safe.
