Hi Lucy Cooke,

I am Arturo Curiel, a high school student pursuing a future in conservation. I have found your work both comedic and inspirational. I am attending an International school where we are able to understand the importance of cross-cultural communication. You have done exactly that across cultures and species. I have been glued to the TV when freaks and creeps came on. Since I was little, I knew for a fact that I wanted to live my life for animals, whether it was training, conserving, or treating animals. I have developed a strong passion for animals and will continue to build on this.
I was sitting watching the episode you did in Borneo with the proboscis monkey, and thought to myself, what if I could tour with Lucy Cooke? I understand that I am young and have my whole life ahead of me, but you could change my life forever, allowing me to live my passion of traveling the world exploring important species while gaining cultural understanding.
Would you consider having a passionate individual become your intern? Would you be willing to change someone's life?

Thank you for your time.

p.s. you are hilarious.

Have been reading your blog and very much enjoy your point of view. Just sent a link to my sister (we were some of the first people to join Bats Conservation International. We love the beauty of the unusual. I, at almost 60, do not have the physical courage to wander South America. Had some friends disappear down there in the early 70's, but would still love to see Machu Pichu one day. Thank you for your hilarious but true point of view.

In 217, the Colosseum was badly damaged by a major fire(caused by lightning, according to Dio Cassius) which destroyed the wooden upper levels of the amphitheatre's interior. It was not fully repaired until about 240 and underwent further repairs in 250 or 252 and again in 320.

Busted! I'm no expert that's for sure so thanks for pulling me up on my taxonomy. I shall never call that frog a toad again!

Ceratophrys species are frogs not toads, they are from the family LEPTODACTYLIDAE which are all frog species. A horned toad is a type of lizard, not a frog.

loving the gothic horror turn your frog blog is taking..
