Swollen Gummi Geckos

More gummi fun with the gummi gecko my 7-year-old begged me to buy (at the hardware store of all places!) With all of that gelatin, our gummi gecko absorbed lots of water. Though it didn't double in length like a gummi worm, when we left it in water it sure swelled up! (One interesting thing: since this gecko floated, unlike our gummi worms, it still had a few areas on the spine that didn't actually get wet. See the knobbly back breaching the water like a prehistoric aquatic dinosaur?)
