Not long after that, she was also amazed by this rather large anaconda:
She chose this book at the library not too long ago:
She's always trying to catch small anoles and she's still carrying around the leftover plastic lizards she gave out at her last birthday. She's repeatedly asked me to show her pictures of different lizards online and wants me to buy her an iguana (no, not happening. Maybe a bearded dragon when she's older).
She also loves bugs. She's the one I had to remind not to pick up spiders after I saw a very large black widow because running up with her hands cupped and gleefully saying, "look at the spider I found!" is just the kind of thing she would do.
She's the one that would always pick cucumber beetles off my plants and feed them to the chickens. She was constantly toting around "callapitters". I've repeatedly had to tell her to take a cup of captured ladybugs outside and set them free.
She also likes things that are bug-like without strictly being bugs
So it really wasn't any surprise the other night to find she had left this in our bed:
I can only hope she continues to stick to the toy, plastic version and leaves the real deal outside.
Sugar and spice everything
