We are staying at Rock Hound State Park so we did manage to take a walk up the trail to try our hand at finding gems and geodes.
HERE. Might have to look for an old fashioned washboard!
We told Sierra yesterday that we would have to let Fasty go soon as he hasn't been eating any of the bugs we have caught for him. This afternoon she came to me and asked if we could let him go...she talked to him and he wants to "go find his family".
So we all said our goodbyes
And he scuried away to the safety of a nearby cactus.
Bye Bye Fasty...we will miss you! It has been a nice couple of days having a "pet" on the road and Sierra has done such a great job making sure he had enough sun and shade on the drives, looking for spiders, ants and crickets to feed him. Mommy was the lucky one to have to catch them though. When we first caught Fasty Sierra asked why he was hiding. I told her he is probably scared because he doesn't know where he is going and Sierra said to me, "yes he does...I told him we are driving today!" She has been a great little caretaker of our litle lizard friend.
FYI Don't catch these jumping spiders for lizard food...they attack all the crickets...he was a mean little fellow, snarling and raising his hairy fangs at you
