Hmm, I think I could get a better video than that one, but it would mean going in to work tomorrow, and I have a whole day off. Two days off, even. In a row! But I want to go back and poke more water pennies ^_^
It is a rule of the universe that the yearly surprise inspection for my USDA animal exhibitor's license (that I'm required to have in order to do educational programs with my skunks and opossums) will be on the day that the house is at maximum clutter and grunge >_> At least I was dressed - I'd just gotten out of the shower! The licensing procedures are really designed more for big commercial operations, not little one-gal shows like me, lol. The kids were all acceptably clean, at any rate, all my critter health records were in order, and Kettle turned on her doggie charm and fawned all over the inspector - new guy, very nice fellow - and my license is good for another year.

Houston, we have a hatching! Remember the teeny luna moth caterpillars? Six gorgeous adult luna moths hatched out yesterday and today from their cocoons!! :D These are two of the females that I released on a big walnut tree. The male flew away as soon as we went outside, we've got two more laddies that are still drying their wings and will be released tomorrow, and I'm keeping one female in a paper bag over night to see if she'll lay eggs, maybe raise a second generation.
