NAPLES — The imperiled species with the strange saw for an upper jaw was the featured species today as Kids Free Fridays and Summer of Sharks continue.
As usual families enjoyed a story time slide show by Deborah Woods, scientific explanation by Dave Graff and the opportunity to handle rare teeth and jaws of several shark species including the saw or rostrum of a specimen confiscated by Florida Fish and Wildlife.
This week other activities included a fishing demo complete with a casting contest and talk on conservation, bean bag toss, shark tooth dig, fishing feeding and more.
Next week they'll be lots of similar activities plus a shark dissection which typically fills the house.
Rookery Bay is located at 300 Tower Road, just south the corner of US 41 and Collier Boulevard in East Naples. For more information, call 239-417-6310 or online at rookerybay.org.
