James has a newt for his Creatures class at co-op. He had to choose an animal from a list.
Our requirements were that he would choose a quiet pet and also one that is not stinky.
This is a fire-bellied newt, I guess. It hails from China or Japan, or something like that. It is an amphibian, kind of like a salamander.
It probably has a name, but I am not sure what it is. My interaction with the newt is pretty much to walk by and notice it's habitat needs cleaning.
Doesn't James look absolutely ECSTATIC to own the newt?? He really enjoys it!
