      I have a big tank of Vietnamese Stick bugs. If you blow on them they will wave from side to side, trying to look like branches in the wind.

      No pets related to my studies (I’m not allowed to have a Neandertal or a monkey), but I do have LOTS of pets! I have 2 dogs (Aoife and Aida) and two cats (Tybalt and Himmaleh), a rat (Indy), and a python (Circe)!

      I’m guessing you’re an animal lover, too? That’s one reason I’m so excited to start working with monkeys and bushbabies next month! Eeeeeeeeeee!!!

      I worked with pigs and chickens in graduate school, studying the bacteria that lived inside of their guts! Gotta love the stinky stuff 😉

      I don’t own any bats, but I have had some cats and dogs in my life and they’re closely related to bats, so that counts, right?
