Habitat Project: Phase Two- Field Research
We decided to do some field research today and headed to the Minnesota Zoo to see what types of habitats the zookeepers constructed for the crocodiles and lynx. We brought our sketchbooks to draw and take notes!
Justin made a lot of observations about the rocks, trees and stream that these lynx kittens have in their enclosure. (Side note: if you live in the area, check them out-- there are currently four kits and a mama in the exhibit and the kitten antics are hilarious!)
The only crocodile they have is the African Dwarf Crocodile, so not exactly the American swampland that Alex is researching, but we made notes on similarities and differences between the two habitats.
