HTML in the Caribbean?

Have you heard the latest news from the Caribbean? Hot Tropical Mice have moved in! They are now living amongst us! It’s crazy! The local natives have been calling the epidemic H.T.M.L. for Hot Tropical Mice Living with us!

What Can You Do?

There are many things you can do to be safe when you visit the Caribbean:

  1. Stay Inside
  2. Lock Your Doors
  3. Bring Your Cat

If none of these work – bring some cheese! These H.T.M.L. seem to love fresh cheese from the Pacific Northwest – specifically from Tillamook Cheese Factory.

About Flamingos — Did You Know?
  • The word “flamingo” comes from the Portugese or Spanish word “flamengo“, meaning “flame-colored.”
  • It is uncertain why flamingos stand on one leg with the other tucked under them.  Some theories are to conserve body heat, or simply because they sway less on one leg.
  • The flamingo is the national bird of the Bahamas.
  • The oldest known flamingo lived to be 83 years old!
  • The “greater flamingo” is the tallest type of flamingo, and can grow to be over four and a half feet tall!
  • Flamingo colonies can have populations in the thousands.  The sight of a flamingo colony makes for a dazzling display!
  • American flamingos tend to be a brighter red color than other flamingos due to the higher prevalence of beta carotene in their diet.
  • You can read more about flamingos on their Wikipedia page.
