After discovering the mysterious footprints last week, some of us decided to make a trap to catch the creature, so that we could see what it was.
Once we discussed building it, we changed our mind and decided to make a cosy den for it instead, so it would be comfortable if it came back.
THEN...today when we went outside to check the den we found and EGG!
A BIG GREEN AND PURPLE SPECKLED EGG!!!
We were a bit shy at first but then we decided to go and pick it up and put it somewhere warm for it to hatch. We put it in our enchanted forest in our class. We placed it on the cushions in front of the heater and wrapped it up in a blanket. Then we watched it...we had to be quiet so as not to disturb it. Someone even phoned the Egg Alarm which is apparently who you call when you find and unknown egg!
After a while we thought that we should keep it wrapped up warm but put it back where we found it, just in case its parents came back for it. WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!
