zoo1 [Elephant Odyssey through Horticulturist Eyes]

Mr. Letzring shared with us how he and his team of landscapers are not only in charge of the plants outside of the exhibits, but also for the plants that go inside. In this rattle snake exhibit at the Elephant Odyssey, the Horticulture Department chose plants that are native to San Diego because they are relatively drought tolerant like the plants rattle snakes are used to being around in their natural home the desert.
