I opened the bag and my "mail" was looking back at me!!!!!
It was a squirrel!!!! I asked where he got it and he said he found it laying in the grass. Oh No. So after letting him share his joy over his new found friend, we started science Thursday with a few little lessons:
1.) This guy was not a friend but a wild animal and NO we can't keep him as a pet
2.) Something is wrong with him if he was just laying in the grass (now go wash your hands)
3.) NEVER put an animal in a plastic bag, they can't breath.
Our science buddy is now resting in a cage outside (no my dear child he may NOT live in your room.) I hope it turns out the squirrel is fine and we can release it. As you can see by the photo, my son is VERY excited by the squirrel.
So for science Thursday, we will be learning all about squirrels. Why not pick an animal to learn about today too! I just hope it doesn't end up in YOUR mailbox!
