Our Budding Scientist

















At a recent zoo outing, Ethan and James got the chance to learn more about one of the resident owls.
“What kind of food do you think this owl eats?” asked the keeper.
“Maybe rats?” asked Ethan.
“I think rats are too big for this fellow,” said the keeper.
“Yeah,” said James, “but it could eat BABY rats.”
Good observation, James.
