Jo Jones patiently filmed this Eagle Babies series at Ice Mountain. It is quite an incredible learning experience.
WVU Scientists at Ice Mountain
Scientists from West Virginia University provide a guest lecture at the IMA 20th anniversary annual meeting, and describe the local flora and fauna.
We are told that salamanders are tasty, protein-packed "power bars" for local fish, birds and mammals.
The scientists show us the concave underside of the male wood turtle.
