National Watermelon Day

WHO KNEW that today was National Watermelon Day (Google it, really).


So in honor of this great day, consider bringing a watermelon to the Museum. Our old girl Ursula is taking her medicine with watermelon. Many of our critters eat watermelon. We’ll be feeding watermelons to our animals throughout the day.

Checkout some past blog posts honoring this amazing BERRY:

    I hope there’s a missing preposition in the sentence: “We’ll be feeding watermelons our animals throughout the day.”

    I didn’t know that watermelons were carnivores!

      we do have carnivorous watermelons here!
      (thanks, I added the “to”)
