Sleepy Snake and Mischievous Mouse by Mochimochi



I'd like to think snake and mouse have an agreement and nobody gets hurt in this relationship. I'm also betting that their matching toupees are a sign of a true and lasting friendship.

These two characters are just a few of the wonderful and imaginative creatures created by Anna of Mochimochi. Luckily you can purchase patterns from the Mochimochi shop and knit your own menagerie. You can also see more of Anna's creations and see what's she is up to on her blog.

The kindergarten project this spring was to watch young boa constrictor Oreo eat a real, live mouse. I've been debating whether to blog about it - maybe you did it for me!

the kid was poised and interested (her teachers and i thought she might be upset), but she treated it like a science experiment. Only two of her friends sat out, ironically, the drama queens. I suspect they were less upset about the mouse and more upset that the focus wasn't on them!

Lucy did a drawing that looks remarkably similar to this cute toy...

Wow, that's an intense kindergarten project. I think I would have had to sit it out. I hope that doesn't make me a drama queen. I'm such a softie when it comes to animals.

I remember seeing these photos at PS 1 in which the photographer recorded insects and animals eating there prey on a white background. Basically each series started with two critters and ended with one critter and the remains of another. It was a little bit much for me.

Anyway, I know it's a snake eat mouse world, but I'm the girl who worries the mice at the pet store are going to get bought by a snake owner. And you know I just don't get people who own snakes. To me snakes belong in nature and not in your house.
