Nearly one whole year ago, our son came home with a permission slip to bring home an anole – a cute little green lizard. We reluctantly signed and Guacamole the Anole was adopted into our home.
We bought a cage, greenery and special bark for an amphibian habitat. Each week we went back to the pet store for live crickets, which reside in their own separate cage. To be honest, we did not expect the lizard to make it through the cold Nebraska winter. Slowly, we learned that the 7 lizards in the homes of other 3rd graders died. Then, our Guacamole was the only lizard left.
