I was recently visiting my aunt in Virginia, and they found one of these critters in their basement!
It’s a skink…I don’t think I’d ever seen one and the one at their house was BIG! It was an older one so the stripes had faded and we ended up taking it to a nature center to find out for sure what animal it was. As it turns out, they are native to that area but it was the largest one the science teacher had ever seen. It was cute!
On my trip back from Philly I got to drive through a town I’ve always wanted to see- Lancaster, PA! We used to live right behind a family of Amish and I enjoy reading about and learning more about them. I wish I’d spent more time in Lancaster--- it’s a pretty place!
