One day mom was upstairs looking out the window and she saw dad and Mitch staring at something in the pond. OMG, even though mom was about 100 feet away she still saw the head of this monster!
Meanwhile, dad keeps insisting that he lives here and mom continues to pay attention to what goes on in the pond hoping to see what this monster really is!
Mom had no idea what this was! She was looking up seals and sea lions because that's what he looked like to her - silly mom! She also guessed that this animal weighed around 70 pounds and we're thinking she got a wee bit carried away because what we read says that they weigh 30 pounds - not 70 pounds! hehehehe
She decided to seek advice from Butchy and Snickers, seeing as they have ponds and wildlife galore at their house! They wrote back and said that it looked like a river otter to them and they are absolutely right! We're thinking by the end of the summer, if Mr. Otter stays around, that we won't have any fish or snakes or snapping turtles or muskrats! He's going to eat them all and we sorta think this might be a good thing! We are hoping that he hates the taste of swans, geese and ducks cause we like those guys!
So that's our exciting news for the day! Mom is hoping that she can get a picture of Mr. Otter in our pond or running across the lawn! We'll see!So until next time.................
Love ya lots,
