What is This?
This dear readers is homeschooling at its um, best?
These are approximately 30 planaria that arrived via UPS at our home yesterday afternoon. Yes, we probably could have found some at the pond. But then we wouldn't have the thrill of having them arrive via UPS. And getting 3o. And we would not have had the sadness over the first set that arrived via UPS, dead. Some sort of shipping mishap that made all the water leak out of their little jar. Yes, 30 dessicated planaria.
And now I am off to cook a hard-boiled egg for the little creatures. Egg yolk or beef liver are the feeding options. Yeah, not a difficult choice. Of course, I am not certain I should feed them, it may be "mating" season and feeding them might cause them to reproduce....more than 30 planaria? Hmmm. Some will be chopped in half to watch them regenerate...60 planaria?
Anyone want some planaria? They ship well...
