Cool Zombie crickets

lol ok, not so much.

Today I made the giant trek to Pet Smart which is waaaaaay across town.....and I have no car, as I'm a youngin' that's too lazy to go get my license.

So I went in, bought my 50 baby crickets (made an impulse cricket food buy...yah, I'm a sucker I know) and went outside and UNFORTUNATELY was 'distracted' by a Tim Hortons and missed the bus by a minute....I stood on the other side of the street and looked really sad but it went by anyway .......I figured the crickets would be ok....but then I checked on them and they were all upside down in a pile at the bottum of the bag, with little tiny horrified expressions on their tiny cricket faces!

I was very saddened, because even though they're feeders they have feelings too! (Although its a better death than their more likely demise when they are batted around by my kitty.)

Anyway, in desperation I shoved the bag up my jacket in order to warm them up and I SWEAR it's like people have NEVER seen a girl with a bag of crickets up her shirt! The LOOKS I got....Geez.

Anyway! They popped back to life, I'm very happy

PS....there is a frog...it lives in Northern Canada (I believe!) and it just sits like a lump and freezes over the winter, then thaws in the spring....anyone know what it's called? It's a cool frog

It's a good trick to get stubborn eaters to try new foods. Stun the crix in the freezer for a minute and then put them on top of the new food. When they "come alive" and start moving your herp will often get a taste of both foods and might start eating something new.

I don't know how putting them up your shirt helps stubborn feeders though.

I'm glad our frozen thawed mice don't spring back to life when we thaw them.

I'm on the understanding that most frogs burrow into the mud and brumate.

lol yea Heather I could imagine waiting outside....

Today's the coldest day EVER. The windchill adds an extra -10 degrees to the current temp (Which is friggin cold) and I had to walk home through a field of which the wind caused the snow to cover the path, so I was walking through 3 feet of snow... SO COLD. I'm going to thaw. Talk to you later

AHaha I would pay to see the look on someone's face if their thawed mice came back to life... ahahah
