Mae, USA, Salamanders and walking sticks
I grew up as a little kid in the 70's and I remember the neighbor kids and I would bring home all kinds of creatures. Mostly toads and salamanders. Black smooth skinned with yellow spots. My mom had an old pink plastic wash tub and we would fill that thing with salamanders. I don't know if I don't see them anymore because I'm not actively looking for them or if they've just disappeared. I also remember finding walking sticks, you know the insects that look like a stick. Crazy when I think about it now.
