    My son the lizard rescuer

    My 2nd eldest, Corey, was walking home from his mates place yesterday, when he came across this little fella stuck in a chook wire fence.he broke apart the chook wire, and got the little guy out, and brought him home. We kept him overnight, in a box with some leaf litter, water and grubs, and let him go this morning I think that he was horribly dehydrated! the colours in his mouth were a lot paler than normal.

    Oh I think he will Dave, he headed straight for the long grass when we let him go. The kids were ecstatic that he lived thru the night, and they had saved him. I hope he manages to stay away from chicken wire, and dogs!

    Congratulations to your son for coming to the rescue,
    it will be something he'll always be proud of and rightly so.
    I love it when I see examples of kids displaying courage and kindness.
    and the best bit is, that you have recorded his proud moment.

    Thanks Avalon, Corey has always been kind hearted towards animals.. he doesn't quite know how to deal with humans, he has aspergers syndrome, and just doesn't understand human mannerisms etc. He deals so much better with animals

    Not quite sure I know how to deal with some humans either,
    but I'm sure this will be a great boost to his self-confidence,
    and what a great illustrated story for "show and tell"!

    Lovely story Kirsty, good on your young man to take the initiative and show compassion towards another living creature. a lot of kids don't seem to get that these days.
    Cheers, Lani.

    Thanks Lani and Kev,Hes always been compasionate towards animals.. he just seems to get them better than anyone else I know. If he could get on as well with humans as he does with animals, he'd do wonders in life I reckon!
    ( all this happened while I was waiting on the dressings for my toe... lol i'm surprised how well the photos turned out! )

    Well done to your son! Its nice to know that there are others out there that will stop and help an Aussie Native in distress. Unfortunately its not a common thing here in Orange (to help animals in distress).

    I'm sure the dragon was very appreciative.
