A Mini-Zoo at The Grove's Nature Center...

The large building is styled like an old-fashioned Alaskan log house, in honor of Robert Kennicutt's time exploring Alaska. As you enter, there is a large, low rectangular water feature that provides a habitat for dozens of turtles....little kids love this.

Cage after cage, each with it's own snake variety.
  This exhibit shows "the before picture" of the home-grown "snakes' dinner", I'm afraid. Perhaps the mice reproduce faster than the snakes can eat them? Good Grief, it's a jungle! I don't know if the little kids who delight in watching the mice (and newborn mice) understand this.
