Salamander from the canoe

Hard to believe that just a bit over a week ago we had 12 inches of snow on the ground, and spring was but a dream...well with 12 inches of snow in late April you also get grass that grows like a weed. So my super husband Lars was mowing the lawn late this afternoon, and when he moved the canoe he made a spring time discovery. There hanging out like he was ready for a paddle was a salamander. Ben put it in the typical lawn pet container (Tupperware) and then did a bit of googling to see what it was and could they touch it. this is what you need to kow if you find one too.

Clean your hands and if you decide to keep it you have to keep it for life.
Have no fear, we did let it go, because the last thing this family needs is another pet!

Charlie loved it, and once we convinced him not to squeeze it he didn't want to stop playing with it. I LOVE BOYS! check it out - my first blogger video!
