Eve of Snows: Ok

In the afternoon I finally finished Eve of Snows, Sundering of the Gods book 1, by L. James Rice. It took me quite some time to finish this book, I don't know why; it's not that bad. I consider it an ok read. I am not sure if I am going to read the sequel, though.

Fishing with Adam

Yesterday, when we visited my brother Marco and his wife Ingrid to celebrate her 50th birthday Adam got a nice present; a fishing rod my brother's son no longer used. Because the weather was not that great we decided to try it out the next day; today.

We used mealworms, Tenebrio molitor, as bait. We had only once a fish nibbling on the bait, but no luck catching a fish. Adam got bored after a while, even before me. My father loved to fish, so we talked quite a bit about him. Since he passed away 18 years ago, sadly he couldn't be there. He would've loved this.

Another molt

In the early afternoon I noticed a cast-off exoskeleton next to the burrow of the Ephebopus cyanognathus I keep; the little tarantula had molted. In the evening I took some photos of the molt.

In the above photo each square is 5mm by 5mm. I rehoused this small tarantula to a semi-arboreal set up the 3rd of May. It has been eaten at least twice since then and seems to be doing great.
