I recently read this amusing blog post from Kathleen. I have a real love of a proper wildlife pond and I spent many happy hours as a child watching and fishing around looking for different creatures ranging from toads and newts to pond skaters and water beetles, desperately hoping to find a dragon fly larvae. This was one reason why, when I decided to get classroom pets, I went for newts and toads. They now live in my flat, and as I don’t have a garden, they act as my little indoor pond.
I decided to record a video blog, or vlog, explains a bit about this subject. I should stress that the animals were captive bred, not taken from the wild (you should not do this). I did lots and lots of reading and research into looking after them properly. Feel free to send any questions or comments.
You can watch the vlog directly on YouTube here.
