Our Visiting Anole Lizards

My oldest is in 7th grade this year - his first year at junior high. He has the neatest science teacher who seems to really have a knack for getting the kids interested in science.

Her entire room is filled with interesting little creatures... chinchillas, gerbils, rats, Anole lizards, a chameleon, and King snake just to name a few.

My son just loves the two little green Anole lizards. She lets him take them out during class, and they perch on his pencil while he takes notes.

There is no school in our district Thurs. - Mon. due to teacher's conferences and President's Day on Monday. His teacher asked him if he'd like to take them home and care for them during that time. He was thrilled. I swear he's had those little guys attached to him all day. They sure are calm little things...but, boy can they jump if you don't keep an eye on them!
