    Air Force mascot Aurora to be ok.

    I have to say I do not agree with road tripping animal mascots, or terrifying them with the lights and noise that come with the excitement of sports.
    Not to mention keeping them caged and at risk of being harmed. 

    Mascots are said to bring good luck. And to be fair I’m sure any harm brought to them is most likely unintentional.
    But a sporting event is certainly not the type of environment for an animal.

    Last week it was reported that a peregrine falcon Aurora had been seriously injured and would probably be euthanized. 

    That she had received serious injuries due to a prank when she was taken by members of a rival team and thrown into a crate.

    It appears her injuries were accidental, and luckily they had returned her in time to receive treatment.

    I was very happy to hear that things are looking up.

    According to the Gazette she continues to improve and it’s said she will make a full recovery.

    This is great news!👍
    I hope that she will retire to a more suitable home as well.

    The various sleeping patterns of animals and why…

    Who do you think requires the most sleep, a koala bear? Or a little pocket mouse?

    Tuck Research has the answers to these questions and more.

    “While sleep patterns vary widely among animal classes and species, there are a few general rules of thumb. Sleep serves important evolutionary functions for all animals, but sleep patterns and positioning are based in large part on available food supply and defense mechanisms.

    This is the new addition to our outdoor terrarium. I love it!

    Outdoor terrariums are so much fun!
    But always make sure its kept up, so not to be a breeding ground for mosquitos.

    Mosquitos can transmit so many diseases that can be harmful to both you and your pet.  The very well known zika virus that spread to people, and of course heartworm that can be transmitted to your pet.
    Did you know there are over ten diseases that can be transmitted by mosquitos?

    Fish are always a good idea in a terrarium, to keep mosquito larvae out of your pond.

    They are so easy to build, and when kept up so beautiful.  I don’ remember a Summer without dragonflies.
