Ahmed you can use own language to put details like description how you spot Organisms, where you find them, how you follow them. Why you take their picture. Feel free to use any language but add your story and let us know more about Organisms from your area. We can translate your info.

Mesh, here is another link. Apparently, these are also sold as pets, though yours is was a wild one and best left that way.
