Emigon loves reptiles. Frogs, geckos and turtles, especially.
She used to have a turtle named Wasabi. Did you know that turtles yawn and sneeze? They're so adorable when they do.
Emigon loves snails, too! She likes to collect them and line them up along the handle bars of her bicycle. She gets a kick out of touching their eyeballs and watching them pull back and stick back out again. She found a teeny-tiny baby snail last night in the bathroom. Its house was the size of a sesame seed. She couldn't figure out how it kept from falling as it crawled down the wall. She let the snail climb up onto her toothbrush and took it outside where it could safely hang out on a neighbor's plant.
