|Pallas cat in the Edinburgh zoo|
Today I'll tell you something about me that some of you might not know yet. For the last 22 years I have been member of a small club that runs our small local zoo. I have seen and held monkey babies in diapers, I have collected porcupine quills, bottle fed a chinchilla, a prairie dog and quite a few bunnies, fled in panic from a pygmy goat and got "combed" by ring-tailed coatis. And I got my eye glasses frame twisted beyond repair by a very smart and quick mandrill girl. To this day I swear she laughed at me.
I know I'm not the only one in our team who likes animals, so I prepared a little safari. Jump on and please hold on to your glasses if you wear any!
|Wombat Owl Lemur Bush Baby Critter Necklace|
Stop number one ... please look to the right. I'm not sure about what you see here, but I do know it's incredibly cute. Opinions about this mystery animal are many and differ. Personally I see a bush baby, but I might be prejudiced as I'm love with bush babies since I was a child.

Now you'll need a good eye. Do you see the little gecko over there in the corner? I like the way their little feet feel when you have them sitting on your hand. Just look at him, isn't he adorable? You know you want to hold him!
You'll find more cute critters like him in the shop of MC Stoneworks.
I got something special for you now. I don't know many people who don't love butterflies. The colors, the tender wings, the fragility and elegance. They are like little dreams dancing from flower to flower.
When there's a whole bunch of them, it's most impressive which is why I brought you here. Don't they just make you want to smile?
The Family Jewels shop is bringing them to you.

|Teal trunk fish|
You know you do look a little tired now. What do you say to a nice bath in the ocean? We could look out for some fish maybe?
Ah, here is one of my favorites now, courtesy of Beads by Melissa Vess.
As you can imagine, these are not the only animals you can find in our team's shop, but I think for now it's enough. How about a cool drink in the lodge now? ;-)
