“Come and play with me,” he says to the fox.
“I cannot play with you,” the fox replies. “I am not tamed.”
“What does that mean – to tame?”
“It means to establish ties. To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you.
And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other.

Chinese Cabbage

Posted 11-06-2012 at 08:21 AM by sandrachameleon (SandraChameleon's Blog)

Good for gutloading, in moderation. Chinese cabbage (Bok Choy, Pak choi) provides Thiamin, Niacin, Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese.

Giant Banana Roaches

Posted 10-30-2012 at 03:41 PM by nightanole

Males are the same weight of a large house cricket.
Females are about triple the weight of a cricket. About the same size as a medium dubia.
