Frankie seemed really bored, just swimming around all by himself. I decided to get him a few "tank mates". I bought five little goldfish and, within an hour, he had chased down and devoured three of them. Then I realized, he's probably never even experienced the "thrill of the chase" in all of his 20 years of life. So that made me happy...even though I felt a little bad for the fish :(
Yesterday was my 2nd day in a 4 week "Reptile and Amphibian" class being taught at the "North Carolina Arboretum". Last week we learned about frogs and toads [that's an "American Toad" in the photo] and yesterday was all about salamanders. Did you know that the Appalachian Mountain regions has the highest concentration of salamander species of anywhere else in the world? I had no idea! It's been so interesting...I've learned so much. In fact, I learned that this little guy is really not a "salamander" but a "newt"
So cute! And next week it's all about snakes! I can't wait!
And congratulations, Lynn!!! You won those gorgeous leaf earrings from my last post. Hope you enjoy them!
Happy Tuesday! Love and peace always ~ Kathy
