Bug Boy

The other morning Joe found half a dead slow worm (the tail end to be precise) lying in a puddle.

And knew his brother would adore it.

Luckily, Daddy was on Joe’s school run duty

and carried it home (so unlike me and the dead frog).

The ‘half a dead slow worm’ (as it’s always referred to) now lives in Henry’s bedroom just in front of the jar with the snake skin in.

He’d better grow up to be David Attenborough…

    Oh my… Do you feed this worm? I wouldn’t know what to do with one…

    I love it when kiddies are like this, my eldest is exactly the same. I remember when he got head lice once and wanted to keep them as pets – I did put my foot down on that one 🙂

    What price to pay or a child’s education. I remember the magic tricks and all the “I have a new trick, sit down”.
    Remember, you supplied the bottle.

    Ha, this is brilliant. My middle daughter was like this. It never got old. She is at Plymouth University now studying animal sciences. Every time she comes home she brings another creature with her. Tree frogs, tarantulas, rats we’ve got the lot.
