      Yes indeed!

      I watched a documentary about amphibians yesterday and learned about a legless salamander that looks like and burrows like a worm. The female of this species feeds her babies with a fluid that is something like milk. It also supplements their diets by shedding her skin every three days which the babies eat.

          Hi Coolwater,

          I don't have a link to the documentary, but here is a link to the particular type of salamanders I described:

          There are a number of species, although it looks like maybe only one feeds its young shed skin.

          Have fun.

                    Yes, and what about that guy who escaped prison, then raped and murdered the former warden? He got caught by the rangers because he was hungry and tried to rob a refrigerator on this couple's porch? When the cops caught up with him he was covered with mosquito bites and ticks. (shaking head) That moron traded a 5 year sentence for much worse.

                      On a slightly lighter note, I understand that my former home State of Alabama is still under threat from Hurricane Dorian. Damn that pesky NWS in Birmingham for telling all the good ole boys and gals not to get their nickers in a twist.

                          I hear Pluto is a planet again. I wonder if it had to bribe some other planets to be voted back in or had some blackmail
