"This area has to do with nature, nurturing and relating information to one's natural surroundings. Those with it are said to have greater sensitivity to nature and their place within it, the ability to nurture and grow things, and greater ease in caring for, taming and interacting with animals. They may also be able to discern changes in weather or similar fluctuations in their natural surroundings. They are also good at recognizing and classifying different species.

'Naturalists' learn best when the subject involves collecting and analyzing, or is closely related to something prominent in nature; they also don't enjoy learning unfamiliar or seemingly useless subjects with little or no connections to nature. It is advised that naturalistic learners would learn more through being outside or in a kinesthetic way.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, naturalists, conservationists, gardeners and farmers." (Wikipedia)

First Fuzzy

Last Friday, when I was still miserable (it was a sucky week folks!) one of the few joys was cleaning the cage and feeding my snake.  I hand picked out the smallest fuzzies and the biggest pinkies from the local pet shop.  (I'll start ordering from the cheaper places soon, but I needed food NOW!)   They seriously had some hoppers mixed in with the fuzzies, so I almost rejected them again, but spotted a few of the smaller ones.

The fuzzy and the pinkie were almost the same size.  Small pinkies are the size of two peas, and larger pinkies are more like a 2cm length cut off a tire gauge.  The smallest fuzzies are like 3 cm of cheese string, while the hoppers were like an adult vole.

Baby Heinz was like stretch wrap, expanding to swallow the mice-lets.  They slowly squeezed down his neck, and this time, you could clearly see the bulge in his tummy. 

On being placed back, he tried to go in through the top hole in the coconut, got stuck 1/3 of the way in, and had to sheepishly wriggle out backwards.  I'm glad he didn't get stuck!

So that's my snake!  Growing slowly but surely!
