So the next place mom visited on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos Islands was an inactive lava tube!
JB: Oooh, this looks a bit scary, mom!
Mom: Just so you can see, I take my Big World Assignments very seriously, and will do what it takes to find you new animal friends!
Lookie here! Mom found me a new Owl friend outside the lava tube, a Barn Owl we think. He was sleeping because it was the daytime, so mom could not see his face.
The lava tube was a bit scary, and mom did not find any animal friends inside for me. I wonder if there are snakes in there?
This next new friend mom found for me was near a small pond. He is a White Cheeked Pintail Duck. I bet he is glad that game is not called "Pin the Tail on the Duck!"
Mom got me a few Great Blue Heron friends, and this one was especially good at posing for mom's report.
So just when I thought mom was being really serious about her Big World Assignment, I found this picture of mom in "Paradise" and found out she was drinking beer here!
Mom: Oh JB, I was working really hard on my Big World Report! I was looking for some fowl friends for you near this foul water reservoir, and suddenly I got a little bit thirsty!
