    Fire-ant Queen Izzy is an inspired creation. If you would care to share any of what inspired her, please look me up. Thank you.

    They could use a crossover from the Aardvark from BC.

    And Spiders and their eight-legged ilk out number us all, for every pound of our body weight there are 200 POUNDS of spiders! Imagine, 8 billion people with an average weight of 100 Lbs, that makes for a sickening amount of creepy crawlies! So don’t feel too guilty if you swat a few hundred of them. You’re not even making a dent!

    Some animals are equal, but some are more slovenly than others.

    Spiders are good they keep the other insects down to a level you can live with!!! There is a reason for every little creature on this planet!!

    Feral pigs are no joke. They used to tear up good pasture land on my Dad’s farm.

    One of the big salmonella outbreaks was traced to feral pigs tearing down a fence and rooting in a spinach field. They can have two litters a year and start at six months old. https://ipm.ucanr.edu/home-and-landscape/wild-pigs/pest-notes/

    Interesting thought about the hogs. As a person living in Texas, I have long said that at the end of the world the only things left will be cockroaches, fire ants and grackles. They can survive quite well on each other. Not sure about the feral hogs, I’ve had experience with them too and they taste good.

    I like how R.J. and the ants finish each other’s sentences. Is a love connection in the works?

    I didn’t google it, but I find 30 piglets per litter hard to believe – the mothers don’t have that many nipples do they?

    Hey Feral Pigs… just ask the passenger pigeon, who’s migrating flocks could block out the sun for miles, how successful having a multitude is.
