    SoundGeneration’s Terrapin Takeover

    SoundGeneration, SoundWaters teen action team, put on a very successful event last night at the SoundWaters Center. Numerous high school students from Stamford, Darien, and Greenwich made their way through animal touch tank stations, horseshoe crab feeding stations and the Terrapin Room. Each animal at the touch tank stations had its very own fun fact. The Terrapin Room showcased the 22 rescued Diamond Back Terrapins that SoundWaters received over a month ago.  Diamond Back Terrapin Fun Fact: The excess salt that terrapins consume in their diet is excreted through special glands in their eye! SoundGeneration's Movie Night will be their next event on February 26...

    Bigger Home for the Terrapins

    Our terrapins have been growing quickly and have now graduated from their nurseries to larger habitats! Their new habitats have about three times more room to swim, plus a larger basking area for them to rest and soak up light and warmth. To accommodate their larger spaces, they also have twice as many lights (for warmth, health, and the production of essential vitamins), as well as new nighttime heat lamps. The terrapins seem very happy with their new homes! We’ve already seen many happily napping hatchlings on top of their rocks....
