Feeding or Harassing Alligators is Dangerous and Illegal

Feeding or Harassing Alligators is Dangerous and Illegal

RALEIGH, NC July 22, 2014 —The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission is reminding people that if you see an alligator, in most instances it is not necessary to do anything other than leave it alone. Alligators have become fairly common in some eastern areas of the state and sightings can be frequent during the summer. Feeding or harassing alligators is illegal in North Carolina. Feeding an alligator will cause the animal to lose its fear of people, making it more likely to approach and possibly attack someone. “Alligators are usually quite shy and secretive,” said Jonathan Shaw, a Wildlife Commission biologist. “If you encounter an alligator, the best option is to leave it alone and give it plenty of space. Alligators […]

Ask the Aquarium: What do shrimp eat?

Ask the Aquarium: What do shrimp eat?

PINE KNOLL SHORES, NC July 23, 2014 Q. What do shrimp eat? A. Shrimp are omnivores and scavengers, meaning they eat most anything. Like lobsters, crayfish and crabs, shrimp are crustaceans with segmented bodies, jointed legs, eyes on stalks and hard exteriors. All crustaceans must molt to grow, and some, like shrimp, even eat their discarded calcium- rich shell. There are many species of shrimp. Some live thousands of feet under the ocean on thermal vents. Others, like the ones we’re more familiar with, live in waters from low tide to about 300 feet deep. Along the East Coast, pink, brown and white shrimp are harvested and sold commercially. These familiar varieties belong to the Penaeidae family. A shrimp’s body […]
