We are hosting a sleepover for eight this weekend!
Six Gray Tree Frogs,
and two Box Turtles!
In case of power outage and impassible roads, the Claude Moore Park employees have brought home the animals from the Visitor’s Center, to be sure they’re warm and cared for during the blizzard. But the employee who planned to take home these reptiles and amphibians (my mom) had a problem with her heating system yesterday, and we were happy to volunteer to host.
We offered to host my parents and their dog too, but being of hearty New England stock, and having a camp stove pre-set on the balcony, she swears they’ll be fine.
So for now, we have these eight guests.
