Every so often I update both my readers with a list of who's who in the Maison Des Girrafes (and attached Parc Zoologique Des Girrafes). We've had some comings and - sadly - goings in the past few weeks, so this is a brief attempt at a resumé.
Worms (Wormus wormus) - in wormery.
Fish (Fishus fishus) - in fishtank in sitting room.
Axolotl (Axolotlus axolotlus): Squirty Benson Wilberforce III - tank on kitchen worktop.
Frogs (Froggus ribitus): Mr and Mrs Jeremy Fisher and Progeny - in garden pond.
Corn snake (Serpentinius murophagus): Sid - in vivarium above fishtank in sitting room.
Chickens (Hennus hennus) - Charlie, Lola, Hermione, Luna, Bracken, Bluebell, Cho, Portia, Titania and Ginny - in the garden.
Hamster (Hamsterus hamsterus) - Victoria - in cage in sitting room.

Electra Z and Tabitha Spong, 7 weeks old, arrived yesterday.
I don't think I've forgotten anyone.
