New Snake Eating Dinner

Here is a picture of our new pet eating his dinner of baby mouse.  It is so cool.  I had no idea that you could buy the baby mice frozen.  Such convenience. **** I often will link to things on Amazon.

Our new pet

Ok, I vowed that we would not be getting any more pets.  I think that two dogs and two guinea pigs are plenty of work for the average family.  I guess that I am now eating my words.  We now have a new pet king snake.  It is my favorite type of pet though in that we caught it in forest, and we will set him free right back where we caught him when we are done having him as {Read More}

Meet My Adopted Son Fred

We went to the tide pools today in Laguna Beach.  It was beautiful.  We had just started looking at things when I saw this little guy in the water. He is a little sea lion pup.

He slowly worked his way higher and higher on the rocks. He eventually {Read More}

Tadpoles

Two of our tadpoles are full fledged frogs. They are not climbing the walls of the terrarium, so I think that they must not be tree frogs this time. This is definitely different from what I am used to. They are just sitting in the shallow water part, so they must like to stay in some water. I may have to build a little pond in the back yard to make a natural home for them. Here are pictures of {Read More}

Outside guinea pig cage

The Guinea pigs have a nice big cage in the family room, which you can read about here. I thought that it might be nice for them to have a big cage outside so that they could enjoy the out of doors without fear of being eaten. I also wanted a safe place to put them while cleaning their indoor cage, and figured if they spend part of the day outside when the weather is nice, that will be less {Read More}
