Little Amphibian

We are meeting a little adorable amphibian today on our adventure. They are sometimes hidden in the forest floor, so be on the lookout for the Red-cheeked salamander.

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Today has become known as Giving Tuesday. It is a day to give what you can to charity organizations that support all kinds of issues. We hear at Ellie & Edmond HQs are going to share two conservation organizations that we think are amazing! If you choose to give today, we encourage you to support these two groups.

 

First Up:

8D3C9816-ACEC-402D-87C8-7FE4FF47E9FE

The David Sheldreick Wildlife Foundation

This amazing organization takes in orphan elephants from the wild in Africa and raises them to return to the wild when they are old enough. Ocassionally they take care of orphan giraffes, antelope and rhinos. They have people who go out in to the wild and save adult elephants who have been injured by spears and other means. We can not say enough good things about the work they are doing. You can donate or adopt an orphan!

 

Second:

82DDF9BE-5AD0-4B64-B678-0AEA5ADF87A4

The Ocean Conservancy 

Our second conservation organization for the day is the Ocean Conservancy. This great group is working with scientists and conservationists all over the planet to protect the earth’s largest habitats and its inhabitants- the oceans. We all are connected to the oceans- even if we live no where near them and without healthy oceans we will not have a healthy planet.

 

8CE599E4-2D29-495B-A424-A2478951F42B

If you choose to donate to one of these great causes or a conservation group of your own- let us know and we will send you an Ellie and Edmond sticker and button. Thanks everyone!

A Welcome Back

Hello dear fans and readers,

I wanted to introduce myself. Hi- I’m Stacey. I am the sole writer and runner of Ellie and Edmond. I wanted to share a little more behind the scenes here at HQ. This past summer and fall have been difficult, as my father became ill and passed. As we begin to move forward, I took some time to re-evaluate Ellie and Edmond and the site.

I have a full time job on top of working on art and making jewelry and Ellie & Edmond. Running 3 separate businesses can be overwhelming.  And as much as I love animals and educating others, keeping up with the site had become more of a chore than a joy. This past 3 months has been a good sebatical and a good time to reflect on the goals of the site and for Ellie and Edmond. It has been a good time for me to renew my love for this little horse and elephant.

Starting Nov 12th, we will be back with all new posts, in a whole new format. My hope is share more of Ellie and Edmond’s personality while we educate you about animals and conservation. I hope to jazz up the website around the beginning of the new year too.

Thank you for your patience during our absence. And thank you for your support and love over the years. I have one request, we need to get our name out there more. So please, share your love of E&E on your pages, social media sites and with friends and family.

Thank you,

Stacey, Ellie & Edmond

and everyone at HQs

Warty Fish

Warty Fish

Today we are meeting one ugly but neat fish today! These funny looking fish are named the Warty Frog Fish! Come learn more about them with us.

 

IMG_4294

Warty Frogfish Fun Facts: 

  • These warty frogfish grows up to 6 inches long.
  • They are covered in little bumps called spindles.
  • They have large mouths that allow them to eat prey as large as themselves. These carnivores eat anything that comes their way.
  • After a few weeks of life they have the ability to change color to match their surroundings.
  • They have a lure on their head they use to catch prey with.
  • Warty frogfish are also biofluorescent. They have proteins that absorb electromagnetic waves and they emit that light in a different color.

Warty frogfish are so amazing! Can you imagine absorbing electromagnetic waves and then glowing? It is so neat!
