Ronan found a small friend
When playing in the backyard after breakfast this morning Ronan found a fun little friend - a small and docile salamander.
Affectionately petting the little salamander
I was surprised at how gentle and calm Ronan was with the delicate amphibian. Ronan kept a steady hand and would at times pet the salamander ever so slightly with his index finger.
A happy boy and his amphibian
Ronan thought to keep the salamander out of the sun - he was worried that it's skin would dry out in the heat. Ronan also spent several minutes observing the little creature - the colors, the legs, the eyes - I was impressed by how diligently Ronan studied his new find.
