Animal of the day – 5/04/2011 – The Crappie

Crappie

The animal of the day is the Crappie. (Did you know: These popular game fish are members of the sunfish family. If you’re trying to catch one, the best times are at dusk or dawn.

These guys will eat just about anything they can fit into their mouths (crustaceans, smaller fish, zoo plankton, etc.) In a awesome move, they actually specialize in eating the young of the fish that are predators of them! These predators  include the northern pike, muskellunge, and walleye.

Also, Christobel makes a mean crappie fish dinner!
