Sketch Tuesday ~ Native Fish or Reptile

This week's assignment was to sketch a fish or reptile native to our country.
We live in Canada, and so grabbed our field guides and set out to decide what to draw.
Andre loves sharks and asked me if Canada had sharks. I wasn't sure about this, so we looked it up and found out that we do! Even one of his favourites, the Thresher Shark. It can be found in the Atlantic, off the coast of Newfoundland.
Adrienne drew a skink. It can be found in Ontario.
Celeste told me she drew a little snake.
I quickly sketched a Midland Painted Turtle. We had seen these turtles on one of nature walks recently.
