Once all the food is prepared, watch as aquarium staff goes behind the scenes to feed the reptiles and fish. See the seahorses suck up tiny shrimp and watch as the tortoises devour the salads you helped make just minutes before. In between feedings we’ll talk more about each species and what they’re eating, as well as answer many questions you might have, like what exactly is a skink and why is it eating a monkey biscuit!
