They always have a curious look.

i find them all they time and put them in my windows in the house for a couple of days and they eat the fly's, or i will catch crickets for them and feed them to it. i also put a lil bowl of water there for them.

Love these ............. every have babies on your vines? they will stay close to there pods,

Thanks Luc! They scare me a little to be honest - I was *very* careful not to annoy him when he was on my arm ;)
