A Lizard’s Tale

It’s a strange day when a child in your class produces one of these in the middle of your lesson.

The poor creature was still alive, thank goodness. I gave it a couple of drips of water.

So it was a case of one lizard rescues another.

(I guess technically, it’s a newt but I had to enjoy the coincidence with my nickname.)

I transferred it into a plastic cup for two reasons. Firstly I know that the heat of my hand might not be beneficial but also because I was worried about the effect of the natural oil on my skin. I covered it up to protect against sunlight too.

And then I transferred it to an area of the school grounds where footfall is zero.

Hope the little fella’s going to be okay.

      I don’t know. I just hope he was okay after I put him outside.

        I would think so. Did the child just find it in the classroom or had it been captured earlier?

        It seems one or two have been finding them in the grounds and putting them in their pockets. I figured the pink would be calming and it was the only thing I could find!

    sweet little creature – I’m glad you were able to get him to a place of safety.

    It’s hard to know what happened to him but I hope he’s okay.
