We were so lucky to have a special guest or (guests) this week! David (Ts Daddy) brought in a wonderful group of salamanders, newts, a frog and a giant Toad! We are so lucky to have a recident Biologist in our school, and he found most of these creatures in their yard!
The salamanders were left in their wet dishes, but we were able to get out the newts and hold them! They were a few years old, bright orange, and so facinating to observe. We asked a lot of questions, overcame our fears, and got to giggle at these amazing creatures.
T was also an expert on all things Amphibian because of her Dad! She was able to answer almost every question her Dad asked the group. I guess we all need to do a bit of studying about Amphibians!
Thank you David for this fun experience for our children! He has promised to return with turtles next time, and I know the kids and I can’t wait!
