Mealworm care??

Your method should work fine, it does take some time to get the colony thriving, just be patient. Generally they like darker areas, I always just used a bucket with a lid, with some holes drilled in, and raised them in a mixture of bran, pronutro (plain) and normal flour, about 1/3 of each, with a c...

Re: Lake Turkana, Northern Kenya

It has been incredibly dry and hot up here the last 5 weeks. We are supposed to be well into the rain season now, but we have only had one small shower around 3 weeks ago, I'd estimate 3mm in total. I found my first Echis pyramidum last night in the camp, interesting snakes they are. http://i.imgur....

Lake Turkana, Northern Kenya

I've just got back from my first month near the shore of Lake Turkana in Northern Kenya. The place is pretty interesting, although being well into the dry season it is VERY dry, and quite hot. There is a variety of wildlife knocking around, but you need to look for it, and everything seems pretty sk...

Re: What spider is this? found at Western Cape Langebaan

That is a male of one of the Therididae group of spiders, which includes the Widow and Button spiders. It is a very lare family of spiders, the majority of which are harmless to humans due to their small size. It is unlikley that the spider pictured was the cause of the bite.

Re: Python attacks horse

Well we'll see when they find it. From the sounds of it, it was going for the foal (week old) and the mare got snagged instead. And for what it's worth, rib bones break very easily.

Python attacks horse

I picked up a thread on FB a short while ago, a 15.1 hands horse was attacked by a python in Kameeldrift, Pretoria east this morning. The attack was witnessed by a groom, and although the python did not kill the horse, the horse was later euthanased by a vet due to the significant fractures and inte...

Re: Help needed with bird

Barbets are related to woodpeckers, and make holes in trees in which they build their nests, so I am pretty sure with such a substantial beak their bites can be quite strong.

Re: Help needed with bird

It's a black-collared barbet. Looks like a youngster. It should be fine.

Re: Kokotsha - South Western Botswana

Just found this strikingly and interestingly coloured Solifugid http://i.imgur.com/cmLJnDS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/IdMBjw4.jpg It wasn't very large, and surprisingly sat still for some time whilst I got very close and took pictures. It didn't even zoom off when I poked it gently with a twig, but it d...
