Snake Sitting Lessons

The girls are lucky enough to be snake sitting for the next couple of months for my brothers snake.

It has encouraged some great learning activities including; measuring the length and weight of the snake (yes - it's longer than Lilly's leg), researching behaviour, eating habits, hibernation, albinos, nocturnal, snake anatomy  and reading loads of books about snakes (resulting in some tough questions like ' why are snakes classified as reptiles when some of them give birth to live young?') 

I love spontaneous learning : )

We used to have a Ball Python, he was over 6 feet long, his name was Houdini. We'd probably still have him if I hadn't gotten tired of being the only one to take care of him. lol He went to a new home.
