We had a great intro to trout lesson yesterday with Bill Foster and Ashik Rahaman a Cornell scientist who is currently working on a whale project. One of our questions about our trout is why do they prefer the glass bottom of our tank over the gravel?

Cayuga Height's Two-Headed Trout!

Second graders at Cayuga Heights have made a very interesting observation. One of our trout has two heads! It appears that it also has two sets of organs and simply shares a tail. Check out the photos and video below.

Trout in the Classroom depends on community support, and now we can accept tax-deductible donations!  We'll accept any amount, but here are some ideas:

$10 - general support.
$40 - buys waders for stream studies.
$100 - annual equipment maintenance for one school.
$1000 - complete new aquarium system at a school of your choice!

For more info, click on "Support TIC", above!

Trout in the Classroom is also looking for classroom mentors!  This is a great chance to share your love of nature and learning with younger members of the community.  No experience necessary; training provided!
