This is how we mix the matrix for the Collembola colonies.
A little plaster of Paris, a little carbon, and a little water is all it takes.
It's a little messy at first, but you get used to it.
Poor Andy gets stuck with the dirty work.
Well, maybe not ALL the dirty work.
The scenery makes even this task easy.
"Those are the craziest gringos we've ever had at the zoo."
"Hmmm, I wonder if Collembola taste good?"
"Jaime is right, those ARE the craziest gringos we've ever had here."
Now, to let them dry overnight.
"You see, Jaime? They only LOOK crazy."
"And to our left we have the zoo's newest arrivals...crazy gringos."
Please go home and let us get some sleep.
More to Come…
