The Adventures of the little Eft Newt

Hello, my name is Spiro and I'm a Red-spotted newt.  I am currently in my Eft stage.  I live in the woods where it is dark and damp.  I hide under leaf litter and come out when it rains.  I love it when its damp as I was born in the water and will return to water when I grow up!  But for now I am happy to forage about on the floor looking for little insects and worms to eat! 

Let me tell you what happened to me yesterday!  I was walking along minding my own business when all of a sudden, these large, pale things came down and scooped me up.  I was held captive inside them and occasionally a large eye would peer in at me.  A high pitched sound kept babbling saying, "Oh look Mommy, I found a salamander!".  A deeper voice said "Its a newt.  You can take him home, but we need to let it go later".  Soon I found myself going along quite quickly still held in the cool pale cage.  Soon I was deposited inside a box along side my cousin, Sally.  Long pale things kept poking at me and moving me about gently.  Soon wet leaves and sticks were placed in the box with us and a plate of water with leaves for dampness.  We explored our new home and tried to find a way out.  After a while the big faces went away and I soon found a way up and out of the box.  I left Sally behind and promised to send reinforcements!  

To be continued.....
