    I've got tons of those in my back yard. If you help pull them out, you can have them for only $50 each!
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    *sigh* new this was too exciting to be true.

    The "curls up in 25 seconds" was a bit much.

    A picture is not proof that something is other than what it appears to be. Does this look like Richard Geer to you (sorry Ozzy)?!



    PS--IF you send me 35 cents, I'll ship him to you, but you have to be a 'serious grower'

    Why would it only be carnivorous during the night time? I can't think of a CP whose motion isn't speeded up by high temperatures and light.
