Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
This is a small, young gecko in the process of regrowing its tail. This year we went to the Cook Islands for Christmas. Not much wildlife - this is the only wildlife we saw that we could photograph, since I don't do underwater photography to capture the great fish we saw snorkeling. Believe it or not, we got a fabulous and very budget trip during low season through Costco. I love to travel for Christmas, getting away from all the hype and presents and so forth and just coming back when it is over. I also love the South Pacific at Christmas-time. It's low season and no one is around. It's summer - hot and sunny. This time we went to the island of Rarotonga, which was fabulous! We stayed at a great place called Sea Change Villas, where we had our own private pool - which I have never had before, and sincerely hope to have again!!! Not all trips are to see animals.......but I can't help but notice them. Rarotonga had a lot of wild chickens, several goats, and very few cows and horses. The island did have several dogs (many of which appear to have been spawned by a basset hound somewhere along the line). We made a donation to the local humane society to support spay and neuter, and held a kitten at the Saturday market. All in all, a great vacation.
