Isaac, Lizard hunter


Isaac was on bug catching kick a few months ago. He then decided that bugs were not cool anymore, and wanted a lizard. We have a ton of these little guys running around but they are really fast and really hard to catch. But with some patience and a strategy I captured him one. He carried it around for hours, he was so excited to have a lizard, but after a few hours of captivity he wasn't looking so good so we released it, but sad to say I don't think he made it. Isaac now says he wants me to catch him a frog.

Wow! You are quite the mother. I'm pretty sure I would leave the bug catching to my husband.

Aren't you excited you get to be the pet catcher?! I'm sure you'll get very good at it.

He should come play with the girls. They are queens at bug/lizard/frog catching. If it is outside and moves, they will catch it and torment it and make it a pet until it dies. Your great to catch it for them, much nicer than me. Maybe that's why they learned to catch them.

Impressive! We not to that stage yet, but I think it's just around the corner...you'll have to fill me in on the strategies of lizard-catching! :)

Who would have thought you'd be running around the yard catching lizards? It was soooo great to see you! We need to do it every year!=)
