Good morning, it's time for choppers, your morning and night tooth brushing chef. Interviews Week on Chompers and today. We have an interview with our French. Jasmine took a field trip to a national park in New York City to talk to somebody who spent all day outside of nature. Fringer Jasmine takeaway. Thanks start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side and make sure to brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each to three. My name is Rik Jenkins and I'm a park ranger. Today we are going to explore the West pond of the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge we're going to go on a nature walk and we're going to see some of the wildlife. Right here in new. York City. So yeah, should we? Hitting the trail. That you're brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth and make sure you get the molars all the way in the back. What can we expect to see on our nature today? So we're going to see all sorts of great things for we'll see a lot of plants and animals. Where most famous for our birds and we'll see some of those today. Journal yeah. So we have a diamondback terrapin turtle crossing the trail right in front of us. This is the time of the year where the females come up from the salt marsh, and they lay their eggs. Switch you're brushing to the bottom of your mouth and make sure you get your front teeth, too. So we can see one right now. It looks to be a female. The females are actually larger than the males and she's probably coming up Theresa megs. She's pretty quick well I. Scare her if I go up there. I'm going to try and grab some sound of her walking. She's like scuttling along and moving her little legs back and forth. Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. Your tongue rush to. Help it does. Does the diamondback turtle grow so diamondback terrapin grows to be about nine inches long if they're female and the males are actually smaller, and they grow to the about five inches long. They're called diamondback terrapins because you have a diamond pattern on their shell. That's it for today, but come back tonight for more of our nature we're. We'll see a raptor and some fresh poop from a mysterious animal on the trail. Until then. To. One.
