Flagon says, roar! Any left to make chili-bug-carne with?
Ahhh.... no.... not quite! ;)
Flagon says, roar! I'll have to hunt some for myself, then!

@ Flagon: Happy hunting!
Flagon says, roar! Must be some bugs round here somewhere!
His writing or at least organisation is a bit scattered, so there are bugs EVERYWHERE! But there are birds too, and people. More birds than bugs at the last 1/3 of the book.

I loved the bits about the snakes and sea turtles. It almost read like a joke when he described how difficult it was to attach a tracker to a sea turtle because it wouldn't stay attached to the shell during their wild bedroom antics. I was also fascinated by him talking about guiding a sea turtle by shining a torch.

So, yeah, when ever he is not talking about moths or the Monarch butterfly, I find the book fascinating, even tho it does jump around quite a bit.
Voyage of the Turtle: In Pursuit of the Earth's Last Dinosaur by Carl Safina if you like turtles.
Flagon says, roar! Found some - anybody want some Millipede Mouse? It's a new recipe!
@Flagon: Flame grilled Millipede Mouse? Or raw?

@Elentarri: Thanks. I'll see if the library has it.
Flagon says, roar! Raw! Ooh - pun! Anyway, if you want flame-grilled I can do some of my famous BBQ Bugs, instead.
I loved the dung beetle chapter, but the moths and ants - meh.

I zoned out during the dung beetle chapter...it's not one I'm going to remember. The starling one, on the other hand was fascinating.
