The Touch Tank at the Museum of Coastal Carolina is a popular attraction, a place where visitors can interact with fish, sea stars, crabs, sea anemones, horseshoe crabs, conch and other live animals.
On Fridays at 11 a.m., visitors are invited to help docents feed the Touch Tank animals. More live animals live out of sight “behind-the-scenes” in quarantine and holding tanks. All of these animals have healthy appetites and must be fed several times a week. These animals have very discriminating palates: they prefer fresh shrimp and clams. Nothing else will do.
