We thought it was neat the Pablo, a mediteranean gecko, is almost transparent! You can see his eyes through the skin on his head. This photo seems to be focused more on Pablo's legs than his head... and the texture of his skin is really neat! (I'm not sure if you'll be able to see it in this photo or enlarge it.)
Also, Barb over at Handbook of Nature Study has issued a new nature challenge to find the "extraordinary in the ordinary" in your own backyard. Here's her challenge:
Find the Extraordinary in the Ordinary. I challenge you to find five ordinary things in your backyard or in your everyday life that you can study and learn something more about. Find something extraordinary in something you have come to think of as ordinary and usual, so usual that you may not even notice it anymore.
That sounds like a great challenge to me! So, what is "ordinary" in your backyard that you might find something extraordinary in? Alex and I have some exploring and research to do!
