Terrapin Tucker Time
By Otago Museum

Tropical Forest Demonstration

Come and witness the magic of our daily terrapin feeding! 

Our terrapins are one of the tropical forests most popular animals, but how much do you know about them? Come and join us while we give our terrapins their dinner and learn more about this semi aquatic reptile. Led by our expert Science Communicators, you'll get up close and personal with these terrific terrapins and learn all about their habits, behaviours, and diets. 

Did you know that terrapins are often mistaken for turtles or tortoises? Our knowledgeable and passionate Science Communicators will help you distinguish between these similar species and discover what makes each one so special. 

What are you waiting for? Come and witness the magic of our daily terrapin feeding and discover the wonders of these incredible reptiles. See you there!
