    The container is open and live plants are growing inside

    The ants are surviving for more than one year

    Recently they caught and dissected a woodlouse.

    Here, too. It's been raining for two days.:(
    Just boring enough to photograph a spider that starved to death waiting for any bugs to walk by inside my house.

    Everyone has their own hobby. This time of year it gets cooler and wetter. Keeping ants may be pretty fun, I wouldn't as I haven't tried it.

    I see you are in Ireland. Do you fish? There is some good fishing from what I've seen in Trout & Salmon. I mostly fish the west coast lochs of Scotland, is really very fun. Never fished in Ireland though.

    I did some fishing here in Florida, but I never got any good at it. I guess it amounts to an hour of very interesting and fun plus 1,000 hours of, "I should have eaten the shrimp instead of throwing them in the ocean". :mad:

    Grouper, snook (robalo), and sharks were the most fun. I wish salmon lived here. They get rather large and taste good. Takao would probably take them home and watch them.:p

    Fresh water fishermen need not reply. What you catch for dinner, we call, "bait".:D
    (A bluegill would be just about right for that.)

    I caught a 68 pound king salmon in fresh water, thank you very much.

    I want to see you hook up a live northern pike or walleye to your line as bait. :)

    I knew that would get a response. :p
    There are also some pretty big carp and catfish in fresh water America and some incredible fish that I can't even name in the Amazon river. I wonder where sturgeons live. Russia, according to James Bond...or was that Jackie Chan? Oh well. I just know I've never met one.;)
