California Academy of Sciences: Science @ Home - Caring for Claude

World-class care for our nearly 40,000 animals is the Academy’s top priority. Meet Academy biologist Jenoh as he feeds Claude and explains what it takes to keep an alligator happy and healthy.

While you watch this video, think about the four questions below. Share your answers with a friend or family member or just think in your head.

  1. What does Claude eat at the Academy? How do you think that compares with alligators in their natural habitat?
  2. As a biologist at the Academy, what would you look for when doing a check-up on Claude?
  3. Why is it important to train Claude during feeding sessions?
  4. What other animals do you notice living in the Swamp?
