One of my favorite things to do in the spring and summer in Japan is look for
Kanahebi are grass lizards and they’re really common in Japan.
And they’re adorable and my husband and I usually keep a couple as pets throughout
整个夏天 然后在冬天放了它们 这样它们可以冬眠 并回到地下
the summer and release them in the winter so that they can hibernate and go back underground.
而今天 这个早晨 我找到了他或者她 我不擅长辨别不同
And today, this morning, we found him! Or her? I’m not very good at telling the difference.
Usually you’re supposed to be able to tell by looking at the width of their tail, but
草蜥蜴真的很温顺 他们真的不咬人 或者他们真的不抓你
Kanahebi are really docile. They don’t really bite or they can’t really scratch you.
So there’s not really any threat in holding them.
Sometimes I look for kanahebi in the morning, it’s really fun.
They’re just enjoying the sunlight in the morning.
然后有一次我打开门 他们正在享受阳光 然后
And then once I open the door, they’re enjoying the sunlight and then…
they don’t realize that I was approaching them and then when they realize it they’re
just ‘woah woah!’ And then they just run away.
这很有趣 可爱 他们真的很可爱
It’s really fun and cute. They’re really cute.
But this time my cat Leo found her.
I waited a couple days to edit this video because I was hoping to get a video of
the new kanahebi eating her mealworms.
But it turns out she’s not ready to finish hibernating yet, so all she does is sleep.
Which is also probably why she couldn’t stop falling asleep in my hand.
Instead, I will show you exciting pictures of the four kanahebi my husband and I took
care of last summer.
