Gustav is cool! We did that with a praying mantis this summer with the kids. They named him cheeseball. It turned out we couldn't find enough bugs to eat, so we let him go free before he died in captivity. Still, it was fun for a bit.

looks like the top of a wheat stem. you should have named him phytomer.

Just one. He's waving it at you.

The nice thing about stick bugs is that they eat lettuce (supposedly). I haven't seen him eat anything yet.

Yeah, that is much more convenient. We had read the mantises were good pets and I suppose a pet store somewhere might have food for a pet like that.

No. Live things are too much responsibility.

brilliant. Wonderful. Enjoy it honey!

We will have another used dog in residence in a few weeks. He is the same age as our current dog (5) and is handsome and healthy. We think our girl will love having a new brother who can frolic with her and then flop down for a window-rattling snore.

sweetwater 09-06-2008 11:09 AM

And this is funny: her name is Bimbo (she came with it, we thought to change it but she doesn't mind so Bimbo she is still) and his registered name has Scholar in it, so his call name is Rhodes. Yes, we will have a Rhodes scholar and a Bimbo as our pets. :)
