I spy with my little eye a very tiny time machine...
... a pocket sized passport into a time long since past.
... where Brachiosaurus and Triceratops roam freely. Horny Toads or Horned Lizards are one of those creatures that appear to have taken one of the shrinking pills from Alice in Wonderland. This youngster definitely looks more like a dinosaur than the sun loving reptile he actually is.
But who is to say he's not a mini dinosaur that survived all this time? Or maybe the time machine he used to get to the present shrunk him down so he wouldn't scare us?
Maybe all the Horny Toads out there, including this Papa toad, have time traveling passports just so we don't ever forget how amazing the dinosaurs were? Or maybe they are just fun to catch...
It takes so little to travel up and down, backwards and forwards, near and far. All you need is a little inspiration, and in my case, one very cute little Horny Toad.
