What's Happening at the Montshire

Join us each month for an up close look at one of the Montshire’s live animals.

Animals Up Close: Crawdads

Meet the most secretive resident of our large fish tanks. Get an up close look at our crawdad — both in the water and out — as we count claws, look for gills, and see what the crawdad likes for dinner.
