Nice series. Neat fact: When you are foraging in the wild, and hard pressed for a small extra bit of sugar in your diet, start looking for rotten logs to find ant eggs. These small rice sized eggs are slightly crunchy, but very sweet and can give you a boost in a desperate situation. So go all horned lizard and eat some ants! (yes I have done this, yes it is slightly weird to get over at first)

Thanks for the comment Telse!
