      My dad would like to see a humming bird in space to see if they could still hover, I quite like that idea.

      If I was going on a very long mission I’d like my dog to come too 🙂

      Tortoises! And Turtles! Tortoises have already been around the Moon (they saw the Moon before Apollo astronauts. Google Zond5) but I’m curious about turtles. I guess they wouldn’t go so well though because they need water and land and heat and UV light and that’s hard to do in space…

      Reptiles in general are awesome in space though.
