Are you interested in caring for a classroom pet over the February break? I am looking for a home for our beloved guinea pig Oreo, as well as our spunky frog Zingo. Please let me know if you are interested ASAP! Thanks!
This morning when I got to school I found our very first silk moth! Did you know that adult silk moth's don't eat or drink anything? They simply mate, lay eggs and then die. It seems sad, but I guess that is the way of the silk moth! Also, I have one very yellow cocoon. At first, I assumed that something bad had happened to this particular silkworm. After further research, I found that it is a genetic trait. Where most silkworms spin white silk, some actually spin yellow silk. I will keep you posted on the future progress of our moths!
