Green sea turtles are the largest hard-shelled sea turtle, growing up to 4 feet long and weighing up to 350 pounds. They eat mostly seagrasses and algae which gives their fat a green color. #funfactfriday #greenseaturtle

FUN FACT FRIDAY!
Did you know walruses can sleep in the water? They come equipped with pharyngeal pouches - inflatable sacs on their throats 😯. These pouches can fill with up to 13 gallons of air which creates a pillow that hold the walruses vertically in the ocean, keeping their heads above water 🌊. Isn't nature amazing?!

ENRICHMENT is an important part of the health and well-being of our animals @ptdefiancezoo While this may just look like a big cat eating whipped cream off a ball (well…that’s exactly what it is 😊), it also encourages our Sumatran tiger’s natural instincts to pounce and hold down prey — whipped cream is the tasty prize. Keeping our animals engaged with ever-changing enrichment activities promotes a fulfilling life at the Zoo.
Animal enrichment is one of the many ways The Zoo Society supports PDZA. You can donate to our animals’ enrichment through the link in our bio and selecting “Animal Care” as your donation type.
