The tooth

I don't remember losing teeth this early in life (5.5 years old) but after brushing his teeth the other day Sammy came out and said his tooth hurt and it was dangling so here is a picture before and a video of the pull. I am amazed at how trusting he was because I wouldn't let my dad go anywhere near my teeth (we'll see how he is next time).

Look out Jeff Corwin

My friend Erica asked for help making a video for a job she is applying for. If she gets the job she would be the wildlife biologist host for a documentary. Erica went up to Fairbanks this last summer and she got together with the Hay Way crew and said she had a funner time there than at the conference she was attending, so she is basically family. Kim helped coach and inspire her acting, and I did the filming, editing, and helped catch the bat, and with the scripting, so if she becomes famous we are definitely expecting a cut of her earnings. It was a lot of fun making the video and a lot harder to do than we expected, but here is the finished product.

P.S. this bat did not come from our attic it came from my neighbor's attic who is also a biologist in my lab and works with bats.

Spring Break

For spring break we went to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a few days and played at the beach. We went with the Puffers and had a blast. Here are some pics
