Nice eyes

so, since i’ve been here, the only things i’ve seen alive other than people are:

jackals, which look like a cross between a fox and a coyote. i don’t like them. they cry and sound like kids.

a rabbit.

fish in the saddam made lakes around me.

turtles in the lakes too

birds. lots of them

a beetle

and a levantine viper. yeah. wasn’t nice to see that thing.

UPDATE:! geckos. i see geckos all the damn time. they’re light tan and move quick!


  1. viper? yikes!

    at least you don’t have a cobra chasing you through your hut or tigers stalking you along the fence line (as happened to one of the old timers I used to work with when he was deployed to an area near you back in the day).

  2. In 8th grade, I was in the “Viper” group…which is something to raise school spirit or some crap like that. I thought a viper was a dinosaur…I was making an f’d up contraction of “velociraptor”.

    My english teacher thought I was a moron. I then killed her first born.
