Decades ago, I was in a zoo of a large city. At the time, it was an old style zoo where animals were in cages. They were also grouped by type of animal, instead of geographic location.
I was in the building exhibiting large cats. Each one stood up, started pacing back and forth inside the cage, and made a noise that sounded like purring. I wondered why.
On my way out of the building, I found out why: Someone was approaching the building with a cart with slabs of meat. The cats knew it was lunch time.
Ooops. You’re right.
Ah — I should have said “northern forest”.
Curse you, Red Barron!
Reminds me of a Burger King commercial. They are against net neutrality. The commercial shows a Burger King in which a Whopper® is ready, but the clerks are told to delay serving it, unless the customer pays more. To see the ad, Google “Burger King net neutrality.”
I meant the adult moths eclose in the spring.
I’m concerned about the decline in insects. As a result, I like to rake the leaves after the spring thaw now. Insects and other small critters need the leaves to survive the winter, especially where leaves accumulate, as in open corners and under bushes. Some moth caterpillars pupate in leaves and eclose in the spring. Some insects lay eggs on fallen leaves.
It’s not dieting. She’s pregnant in the weekday episodes. That hasn’t been shown in the Sundays, yet.
In much of northern North America, earthworms are an invasive species. They couldn’t survive the ice ages. When the glaciers retreated, forests evolved to need slowly decaying plant material on top of the soil. When careless fisherfolk discard earthworms used as bait, they can reproduce and damage a forest.
