Herptile Spotlight : The Emyduras

It’s been a while since our last Herptile Spotlight. Kroten used to be the one writing this, but I am taking control for now because it’s a bit scientific now.

The reason why I suddenly want to write this is because there are so many people who seemed to confuse between these three emyduras: Emydura Sublogosa, Emydura Schultzei and Emydura Novaeguineae.

It’s actually easy to differentiate Emydura Sublogosa to the other two Emyduras, the one that is difficult to tell apart is between Emydura Schultzei and Emydura Novaeguineae. To be honest, I am still unsure which one is Papoe’s species; Schultzei or Novaeguineae.

Mommy’s Other Love

We have just found out (she is trying to keep it as a secret from us) that Mommy now has another love!!

Mommy always wanted a cat but she never got one (well, one when she was in her teen but only for a couple of months) because of her asthma.

Now…she gets her wish to have a cat..well, more like her brother’s family cat. So, for the past few months she had been loving that awful kitty every weekend. When she came home and left us all alone in her dorm, she was enjoying her time playing with her pet-nephew (not only her Hu-nephew now).

She has lots of his pics in her mobile which is unacceptable, it supposed to be only us in her mobile phone!

Anyway, this not so cute cat is called Gembul. He sometimes sleeps with Mommy (there’s one pic in her mobile showing him sleeping on her arm) and chases her for food.

I am going to share his pic, I think you all will agree with me that HE IS NOT AS CUTE AS US!

First of all…I am a bad Mommy :( I have forgotten my dearest baby’s Gotcha Day :(

I had a lot of things on my mind lately and somehow I forgot that on March 11, 2012 I had brought Papoe home. I looked at my calender just now and was shocked because today is March 15…I have forgotten the important March 11. I am so sorry Papoe.

Happy (late) Gotcha Day my Dearest Papoe…
love you so much.

Here’s a nose kiss for you :)

If I had a Tattoo

My religion doesn’t allow me to have tattoo because it will block the water when we had Wudhu (cleaning before praying), however we are allowed to have temporary tattoo using henna because henna doesn’t block our skin’s pores.

One of my students is really talented in drawing with henna (you can see some pictures using henna here> google). I asked her to draw a simple one…which is a turtle ;)

Too bad she draws it upside down, it is seen from her point of view when she draws it. But I like it anyway :)

When I get home, I immediately take picture of my turtles near my temporary tattoo ;) Continue reading
