Critters in the Art Room!

Today we had a very special visitor!

Name: Smarty, because this guy was very clever.

In our part of the world we have a lot of lizards, geckos, and roaches.  I can handle lizards and geckos but I usually call our building manager to take care of the roaches for me because somehow they always end up in my sink over the weekend.  EWWWW!  I once had a lizard that was about 8 or 9 inches long end up in my room he was HUGE!  But this little guy was easy enough catch in a plastic bin and the kids love seeing him as a special treat when we line up to leave.  At the end of the day he was set free in the courtyard where he will no doubt eat some bugs and help our gardens.

Do you have any critter stories?
