Play Time At Petco

This may be the coolest field trip in the history of field trips. When you go to Petco on a field trip they bring out some of the animals to show the kids, they tell about them, what they eat, how they live, and then they let the kids touch them. Picture above is of Grant with a baby Gecko.
Grant grinning at a baby ferret, Ella watching him like a proud big sister.

All of the kids in the preschool with Sue, our tour guide and a Chinchilla, which I have to say was my favorite.

Ella touching the gecko's skin he had just shedded, did you know they eat that afterwards?
Grant touching the baby snake, definitely not my favorite animal.
Ella touching the snake, I didn't think she'd touch it since she is such a girlie girl, but she had no problem with it at all. She did exclaim that it was slimy when it really wasn't.
And Ella petting the turtle.

In Thailand, we had those types of geckos living inside our houses! The small ones, like in the picture, weren't bad but the larger ones were. Glad you all had fun!
