NFC: Gregor.

Hey All.
  Just thought I'd tel everyone about my most recent ... weirdism. :)  
  Last night, my suitemates and I decided to go "peeping."  No, not THAT
kind of peeping. :p  Peeping as in hunting for the first few wpring
peepers at night.  Unfortunately, the temperature dropped and we didn't
hear/see/catch any (just as well, the one thing no one figured out ahead
of time was what we would do with them once caught. :)  However, aside
from finding a nice place where lots of minnows could be found, a few
crayfish, and seeing a pair of beaver, we found Gregor... a large (2-3,"
being conservative) predatious beetle.  He's now living in a cookie tray
on our sink... We threw him and the other catch ( a signel itty bitty
crawdad, a few Trichoptera) in there with some Java Fern, a few hunks of
coconut shell and.. ahem the lids off a few jars (Hey, we were
improvising. :)   
   So far so good.. he killed and ate part of the feeder gldfish we threw
in there.  
   This should be a pretty interesting thing to try, keeping something
like that for a time being.  
  To whoever gets the meaning of the bugs name, "Gregor,"  I grant a free
cookie (albeit, a virtual cookie.)
