I remember as a kid, my sister and I skimmed beetles out of the pool and kept them in an empty bucket. We thought we had saved them from drowning. Well, they were water beetles, so we actually killed them by depriving them of water.

It was very cool to watch...in a sick way I guess.

I felt sorry for the little bee, he had no chance.

Hmmm...don't know about that. I'm sure he was asked all sorts of questions by his classmates when he first moved here.
It is entertaining to listen to his parents cheer him on in Afrikaans during our kid's soccer games. I tease them, saying they are telling Bevan to take out the opposing players.

I had a stud madagascar hissing cockroach. He would hiss like mad if you flicked his back. And by stud I mean I actually loaned him to the science teacher every now and then so he could breed more for his classes.

Chances are, he has been asked those questions. Including the ever popular "did you have lions in your garden?" Sadly, most children in Europe/North America have the perception that everyone lives in mud huts in South Africa - which is not their fault, of course, considering that the Discovery Channel never shows downtown Cape Town on a Monday morning.

@ the parents! If you hear them using the word "bliksem" it's time to get worried.

Holy crap, they are tough little bastards...I was actually getting more freaked out watching them crawl from what should have been the depths of their deaths.

I've got news for them though...this war isn't even close to being over!

I used to have four Madagascar hissing cockroaches, but mine were all female, so no stud action for them.

I had a tarantula a few years ago and have always wanted a scorpian. Tarantulas have been one of my favourite animals since I was three and got to hold one at the zoo.

Hahaha, I'll try to remember to listen for that word this weekend at their soccer game.

As for the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, no thank you.

It's cruel that I'm laughing, but still. (I hate bugs. Loathe them. DETEST THEM.) Nuke 'em well!

There was actually a thing on the news last night about these bugs. We were all excited to see other people sharing our anguish.

There also weren't nearly as many bugs on the house yesterday.

You need to buy some garden snakes to take care of the bugs.

Then some hawks to take care of the snakes.

Then some apes to take care of the hawks.

Then you shoot the apes.
