An example of the fun and games to come.

I love this time of year, because ’tis the season of new life. Yes, birds and bunnies and blah blah blah… But also these. 🙂 You can order them from natural pest control websites, and can also find them sometimes in zoo gift shops.

They are called ootheca. They each contain up to 200 eggs. And in the next few weeks, they will hatch. And hundreds of neat little critters will make their debut. No, they’re not xenomorphs…but just as cool. 🙂

Stay tuned… I will have tips on how to care for the ootheca, and how to raise one of the critters contained within to adulthood. Don’t be afraid. Be fascinated!
