Horseshoe Crabs and Ladybugs – April 27, 2011

We explored the external and internal anatomy of a horseshoe crab using a gigantic model and had a chance to touch and hold a live horseshoe crab with Nina from the Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Horseshoe crabs were once used as fertilizer by Native Americans and early settlers. We also released 1500 ladybugs donated by the 4-H Cape Cod Cooperative Extension into the garden.
