OMG Hotvampire69 what have you done ?

Kaz and I took the remaining tropical fish from our aquarium to the local pub and now they reside in their rather super fish tank. Kaz as we speak, is scrubbing our tank out and is intent on keeping some of the creepy crawlies that you've introduced her too. shocked.gif

What have you done ? I was a happily married man but now I'm going to become  a nervous wreck. Whats she going to get and how long is it going to stop in the tank ? shocked.gif

I've already purchased a pair of bycle clips. :smt046 She's just nipped into the house for the tape measure so that she can see how many of the little horors she can have.

Oh well at least it was only turtles the kids put in one of my fish tanks, other one is full of my fish still!

Turtles sound a lot more fun than bugs.

Many years ago I got hold of a wierd hunting book and the one thing that I remember about it was a chap who had  Bull Frogs that he used to put outside to catch sparrow in the garden  shocked.gif

Bodger, friends in Maryland have a little pond in front of their house by the bird feeders.  They had a frog move in and eat some of their birds.  I had pictures somewhere......

We're going to visit the place that sells reptiles/amphibians/creepy crawlies on the way down South on Tuesday so that I can get more idea of what to get

Well I've always wanted an iguana. Not sure how the cats would take to it though!

Kaz,

I think that you should get an African Land Snail, I am almost certain that Bodger will be able to keep up with/out run one of those. With the size that they can attain he wouldn't have much of a need for the bicycle clips either.

Although I have heard that if a small/medium A.L.S. was to slither up your trouser leg, it would be 3 days before you said;


"Ah! that was nice!"

I would recommend you buy Bodger a pet of very low maintenance.















How about a tin of salmon  ::  ::  ::  ::

Max has had a couple of King snakes (both called Henry, hows that for imagination!) but she kept forgetting to defrost the mice. Which was a bit unpleasant when you opened the microwave.

How about those Kimono Dragons fings. Look really small on the telly.

One thing for sure, is that she wont be having slugs for pets. Before we modernised one particular part of the house, we use to get regular visits from the slimey little individuals shocked.gif In the middle of the night I would often be summoned to remove some real whoppers from the carpet. Somenights you virtually had to play a kind of hopscotch to get to the bathroom. She hates them and to be honest, its not very nice to squish one with bare toes in the dark. shocked.gif  shocked.gif  shocked.gif

Good bait for Chub!
Think about it.
bodger

Good bait for barefoot wives trooping to the loo in the middle of the night as well    :smt046
