Tonca's 50th Birthday

July 16, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Free with Admission

Join the fun as MOSH hosts a 50th birthday bash for Tonca, our beloved Apalachicola Alligator Snapping Turtle!  Tonca has been the unofficial mascot of the Museum since 1994.

Don’t miss Tonca’s annual weigh-in and check-up that will take place at 1 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Community Conference Room. This is the only day of the year Tonca is taken out of his pond briefly for the public to see up close and personal. 

Party activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include games, animal encounters, and plenty of yummy treats. Party guests will receive 10% off any MOSH Birthday Party package booked that day.
