Thanks for the feed back lochaber. I totally agree that often the youth have very creative solutions to our problems. I often include them in the planning phases of my projects. Currently we are also setting up a salamander tank, to add to the other displays in my classroom. The other tanks that are in my room include : 20 gallon goldfish, 25 gallon fresh tropical, a terrarium with guppies and soon to be crabs, 150 gallon salt reef. I also intend on setting up a 10 gallon crayfish.
I should also mention that my classroom window looks out to a forested area, and the deer often wander though.
