I noticed that the laterite subject has been brought up again.  There was a 
lengthy discussion about laterite just a few weeks back.  For those 
interested in learning more about laterite, I'd strongly suggest hunting 
through the APD archives.  Some bottom line messages are:  your backyard 
clay is almost certainly not laterite, whether it's red or not.  Most 
laterite exists in tropical areas.  The easiest way to acquire some is to 
purchase it from a reliable source, such as Dupla.  Relative to other 
equipment (CO2, lights), it's not very expensive.
