My University diary :)

Hey guys thought i would let you know how university goes by setting up a diary... this way i do not have to keep going in the campfire and posting Smiling

 

Today was my second day on induction and i met the most cutest critter ever. His name is hugo and he is a side striped skunk only 2 months old... he is already big and very friendly and he is a huge hit. I also walked around the animal unit where i will be getting stuck in next wednesday. Interestingly they keep Harris Hawks native to america if a i remember but a couple of months ago sadly one escaped and the staff thought that was that but amazingly he has been spotted three times this week and seems to be adapting to living in britain and is finding enough food. Its amazing how resisliant animals are...

Back to uni this week Laughing out loud

Haha yes especially on weds there was so much poo and the smell made all of us in that room dizzy. Sadly i have no more handiling session as next week it is exam time and i have to show the examiner how to hold a rabbit and a water dragon correctly. I am a bit nervous but it should be ok. On tuesday i was in the lab for chemisty Shocked Sad and a titration experiment had to be carried out it was  very difficult but i managed to complete it.

Its nice at plumpton now because the swallows have arrived and they dart in and around the college so its fun to watch. Sorry that i have not been posting much been really busy. Will try and get on later in the week but its hectic. One other lighthearted thing is one of my lecturers is stuck abroad in trinidad because of the no planes haha lol we were not complaning Eye-wink

Yes indeed lol. I have finished for two weeks now got a holiday and therefore i am not there hehe. However some updates i have put in the room with all the tortoises the most hottest room there. Its good but really annoying because the tortoises need to have their bowels stimulated by bathing them. Now logic would say that after you have cleaned their pens they should poo in their bath. However logic never happens and once you put them back in the mess everywhere and its horrible then we have to clean them all over again its rather annoying lol.

For my ecology report i had to write i decided to write about Spotted Hyenas which was really interesting and has made me decide that i would really like to study african mammals.

I'll give you a tip about breeding rabbits.   Just put them together and leave them alone.   They'll do just fine.  Smile

ROFL a bit of both Eye-wink... No in all seriousness i have been busy with work... As in the college work and the work work at the department store i work at. I am doing an assingment at the moment on how to sucsessfully breed rabbits. Its quite interesting but there are lots of morals involved. I have also finished my three week stint in the fish and frog room which has been interesting and they have been having live food we have poison arrow frogs. Which are only poisonous in the wild because of the food they eat. In our unit they are not deadly. Tomorrow i am in a new room or could be outside with the owls and falcons. So we shall have to wait and see. Only have two weeks left before i break up again and this time it is for easter. Two weeks off but it has been a difficult term... But i am almost there. Must go now i am doing work so chat to you all real soon ...
