Pretty Science

The boys and I found a spotted salamander sleeping on our porch yesterday. We decided to try and keep him. I made him a little home in one of my decorative jars...and decided I kind of like how it looks. After some research into what Salamanders eat, we decided to dig up some worms. We found so many that I began thinking of keeping all of them to see if we could establish a little worm farm to keep old Sal fed all through the winter. I found another decorative glass container and the boys and I got to work. The boys are thrilled with their new "pets", I'm pleased at how much we've all learned about salamanders, worms, habitats, etc, and I love how pretty our little habitats turned out!
