My name is Elena and I am 8 years old.
I love reptiles and bugs! This tarantula came to my birthday party.
I have two crested geckos named Snowflake and Vega, and they had a baby.
I also have a dog named Penny. We think she is a basenji.
I have 2 dads, 2 moms, 3 brothers, and a sister and 7 cousins because I was adopted. I flew on a plane to Sacramento when I was 5 days old. This is my brother Jonah and sister Maddie.
One of my favorite things to do is to catch lizards at my Grammie’s house. I have caught more than 30 western fence lizards. This one is a baby.
I also like to cook and do arts and crafts. I am a great baker and drawer.
Someday I’d like to visit Hawaii to swim with dolphins. I hope I don’t see any sharks!
