Just a special reminder that all the photos that appear in my blog about WRC are Internet googled images unless otherwise stated. I can't photograph while I am at work. So these are not them, but they look very similar :-)
I learned the safest way to hold a pilaited woodpecker last night. Never thought I'd need that skill.
I learned that the kingfisher are SUPER COOL birds.
I learned that even though the Common Snapping turtle may look absolutely "adorable", "sweet", and "innocent"..... There were not too many people cleaning Ward J the last few weeks, except me.....hmm......
I also learned that not too many people line up to unplug a small drain hole in the snapping turtles tank, that a minnow decided to go head first into.
I literally had to get a broom. Push and I mean PUSH HARD!! to slide him backwards away from the drain, and with my other hand, reach in, yes... reach in and dig a minnow, that had since died, out of the drain hole. I'm thinking... he is just going to eat the broom and then my hand or head. Which ever he jumps and gets to first!!
This is a big turtle. I can't venture a guess on how many pounds but he looks a lot like this one, except more moss growing off his shell.
I still love my "job". love love love it!! K~
