Funny other animal stories

One day I walked by the red ear slider tank and noticed a baby snake in the tank. I loudly ask why is there a snake in the turtle tank. My brother who had come over to mow came in and Said that's not a snake it's a worm. I said no it's a snake. It has a tongue. He Saud oh I thought it was a worm. The snake was returned to the yard.

+ at the same time. How did the snake get in there? Is it an open top? How big was this 'super' worm? LOL. And the turtles weren't bothered at all by their 'visitor'??

Oh I forgot to mention he thought the turtles would eat the "worm" he gave them. It was a baby and no they didn't seem fazed.

Re: Funny other animal stories

A couple years ago one of our Maltese keep looking under our stove and digging at it. I didn't think much of it at the time. I just figured she had lost a toy under there.

Well a couple days later I was planning on cooking something with our cast iron skillet. I open the drawer at the bottom of the stove where we kept the skillet and found this:



Needless to say, I screamed and closed the drawer. My wife was gone that evening at painting classes. I called all the exterminators and no one could come out to remove the critter for a couple days.

My wife eventually came home, pulled the drawer all the way out and grabbed him/her with tongs and tossed it outside. I was hiding in the bedroom the whole time.

In the following weeks we discovered 3 baby possums (live) 2 dead rats, rocks and dead roaches in the house.

This (cute one on the left) had been bringing them all in through the dog door.

Holy smokes, Karen! No, I'm NOT laughing! I think I would have screamed like a little girl.

I did scream like a girl and made my very girly wife handle it while I cowered in the bedroom refusing to come out until she assured me it was gone.

Re: Funny other animal stories

pahaha! loved the possum story =)

My mother once informed me that when i was little we had a goldfish, one of those poor little guys you win in a bag from the carnival (it was the 80's). Well this fish, bubbles, had been fished out his bowl twice by the cat and survived to which it was renamed lucky. Then one morning my mother comes downstairs to see me at age 2 sat on the floor with the empty fish bowl between my legs, i apparently look up at my mother with an orange scaled grin and say "mummy i eat fish finger"......poor lucky =(

Re: Funny other animal stories

I also "won" one of those goldfish at a school carnival in first or second grade (and my mom was less than pleased when I came out to the car with it). Well after a couple months of begging, my mom finally let me get "Fish" (I'm not real creative with names lol) and friend- a glass fish named "Glassy" (did I mention, names, not my strong suit).

Well, Glassy and Fish were in a simple little tank on my desk. While my mom made me clean it every single weekend, there was no filtration or anything fancy for the tank. They lived on my desk quite happily for several years. One year we went on a vacation for over a week and while the bird sitter fed them, she didn't clean them. When we got home, Glassy was belly up, presumed dead from the dirty water. Poor Glassy was netted and just before we flushed the toilet, he came back to life IN THE TOILET! After that "experience", poor Glassy unfortunately got stuck in the tank decoration not long after and died for real, but Fish lived on. Every so often, Fish jumped out of the tank at night, but I usually heard him flopping on my desk and put him back. One night though, he jumped out and landed on the carpet. That was about the time I realized fish were just not for me. I'm also glad they don't give out live animals to little children as prizes anymore and that the pet stores carry better "starter kits" now than a bowl with some rocks and a castle so providing better care is easier for "novices".
