Day 35 of 42
Our house sounds like the deep dark spooky woods tonight. We have this adorable little lizard in an aquarium that we got our son for his 5th birthday. His name is Bowser and he is an Australian Bearded Dragon. My son loves him and feeds him and helps out where he can to make sure he is taken care of. I don't mind cutting up lettuce and veggies for him every day, but I'm not too fond of the worms and crickets. We have discovered a few things about crickets. If you buy them at 4 weeks old, they are nice and quiet. If you buy them at 5 weeks old, they can chirp. Chirping is not good. The problem is, the older ones are easier to catch than the young ones. So if we buy the young ones and Bowser can't catch them all, they hide and grow and then chirp. Hence the forest sounds tonight as we try to fall asleep.
