Mexican Jumping WHAT?!?!
Most of us have heard of Mexican Jumping Beans and if you are like me thought oh sure a bean that jumps. So much to my simple minded amazement I want into the local Dollar Tree only to find what?? Yep you guessed it Mexican Jumping Beans. So as I sit there with my daughter watching the beans twitch and think what in the world makes them do this?? "Magnets perhaps" I thought. Well sure enough as I look at them a sales associate walks up to me and starts to talk about them. It was then I learned what they truly were. SEEDS! Not only seeds but they were seeds with tiny caterpillars in them. The jumping in fact it cause by the movement of the small creatures inside as they mature into tiny moths. So naturally I bought one, I'm not sure how long this process is going to take but I plan on watching them the entire way. This is my little Beandito :O)
