When the host asked Sadie if she would be willing to let the bug crawl on her, she stood there looking at the thing for a good three seconds and then nodded yes. Nathan blames me for her fear of spiders. If she sees one of significant size she gets the shivers, it cracks me up. But with other bugs she is super curious. She loves to hold crickets, caterpillars, worms and beetles.
Emma watched and afterward pet the snake, lizard and millipede that were open for petting. She asked if she could hold a bug so I told her to raise her hand but she did not volunteer for the scorpion or tarantula. Sadie was really upset that she did not get picked to hold all of the bugs and creatures. We all learned a lot about bugs and snakes like the biggest bug in the world is a giant squid (the size of two school buses) and the largest fossil found of a cockroach was thirty seven feet long and it lived in the ocean. The smartest bug in the world is an octopus.
