So, this is the nature news flash page where you can see recent things going on in nature.

I was riding on my electric scooter and come up to one of the roads you cross on the trail. I then see a small black creature with some yellow marks. ‘A BOX TURTLE!!!’ I yell and without thinking, jumping off the scooter, running towards the road, (not checking for cars coming) and grabbing him and bringing him to the other side of the woods. He was going quite slow so he was in some danger. It was not an adult yet and pretty small. I then put the turtle in the woods and see a frog jumping around! I almost caught it, just barely missing, but instead watch the box turtle, who was moving faster now. As I continue down the trail, I come up to the pond, and grab my breaks to see 3 bunnies hopping around the trail! I watch the rabbits cross and go on past the pond. I then turn my head and see a bunch of birds flying away! A little further down the trail are some squirrels too! This was a very amazing and interesting scooter ride! It was seven o’clock, so I know the best time to find some wildlife is around that time. I did not have a camera or video camera with me, but I will start carrying one around more often.

So, two weeks from Saturday (May 5th), there is a festival at the Piedmont Wildlife Center, a nature and animal center in North Carolina. I will be there, sponsoring the NC Nature News! I will have a stand with products you see in the buy page of the NC Nature news, photography and more! Here is the link to the Piedmont Wildlife Center, http://www.piedmontwildlifecenter.org/festivalforwildlife/ I hope you come and see you there! Be sure to spread the word of the NC Nature News even more! The more viewers, the more followers, the more followers, the more stuff on the NC Nature News, the more stuff on the NC Nature News, the more people learn about nature, the more people learn about nature, the more people will care about nature, the more people that care about nature will help Earth. What is better than that? I hope you’re enjoying nature and try to enjoy the April showers because I want May flowers! Thanks for following the NC Nature News!

Yay! The animals are coming out! I’ve seen about 15 lizards and about 8 frogs. I have caught a female eastern fence lizard and a toad! I could have caught more lizards and frogs but I want some to keep most of them free. I’d say almost every single type of lizard, frog, toad, salamander and turtle is endangered. Keeping them free can then make it easier for them to mate because I’ve never found a male lizard before but I’d love to breed some lizards. The only problem is I’d need a lot of cages because males cannot be in the same cage or they will fight to the death. Females will hang out together and be just fine so in each cage, you would want about 4 females and a male. Anyway, I’m soon getting close to letting them free but before then, I want to name them. Any ideas for a name? Just leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I may pick that name. I’m looking foward to seeing more reptiles and amphibians! My goal is to see a salamander. I’ve never seen one in the wild! They do live in North Carolina so I’ll be keeping an eye out for them. Enjoy the nature of NC!

So, today, we were clearing out a space for our garden. We are making a garden in our backyard. Soon see videos and photos of it in the videos and photography sections. Anyway, I came back from dropping off some of the yard waste and Emily said to come over to her. I went over to her pointing at something. She found a green anole lizard! I have found one before. There is a photo of the old one in the photography section. I quickly caught him and got him a cage. I then cleaned it and got it ready for him. I did a project on reptiles and amphibians last year for my science project and went to get the information on green anole lizards. I could see his ribs sticking out, so I could tell he was starving. It said they eat moving insects so I got him some worms but he wouldn’t eat them so I then bought some crickets and he wasn’t doing anything for a while but began pouncing on them. He’s in his cage beside me right now, eating some crickets. Ooh! He’s chewing! I think he just got another! Soon see pictures and videos of him too. Thanks, Emily for finding him! If you can think of a name for him, leave a comment and I (and Emily will get a say of course) may choose it.

So I was looking up at the stars on my way home and thinking about how the sun is the biggest star in our galaxy. Our galaxy…I then remembered, we only have one star in our galaxy and that is the sun. If there is only one star in that area, than yes, of course it’s the biggest of that area. All of the other stars we see are not in our galaxy! So that means that there are bigger stars than the sun out there somewhere and the sun isin’t actually as big as people say it is. Yes, it’s big but compared to other stars, not so much.

One of my favorite things about the beach is seeing different nature than normal, like crabs and birds. A favorite bird to see are seagulls! For the past few days, I’ve been seeing seagulls in Durham. I can’t figure out why seagulls are this far west! And it’s not like they always come this way at this time because this is the first time ever seeing them over here. Any Ideas why? Comment and tell me!

Today, I was on the nature trail I go on a lot and is coming up to one of the lakes I like to fish at. We were also thinking of getting a boat in the summer for it. So I’m walking up and see a sign. I walk up to the sing and this is what it says:
And I say outloud What! Why! AHH! and some other things… Anyway, I don’t understand why. For one thing, that was the only other lake you could actually do anything at. I know this wasn’t a very joyful nature news flash but I think it still matters to say it.
