Red Eft








We had a visitor to our backyard today. A Red Eft. It is the juvenile stage of the Red Spotted Newt. Apparently they're very common. I've never seen one, though, and Nathan (our 4 year old) was enthralled. How can I work with so many cool things to share with my son? I guess some of the tadpoles we saw earlier this year were newt tadpoles.
