Eel days at the field station

Dr, Oktay asked that the Jr. Rangers help to continue some Eel research begun this year by students of The Nantucket Semester.  Raymond and Nicholas have some data boated.

As we prepared to process our findings a family group stopped by for a look see.

The trap placed at the Life Saving Museum end of the marsh had this beauty inside.  13 inches long and a 1/2 inch wide. She was released that same morning back into the marsh 

We placed a trap where the pond empties into the marsh.  This snapping turtle is now a summer resident of our fresh water exhibit in the field station laboratory.
