Re: And the beasts of the field...

Won't the ferret eat the gekko?

No the gecko has its own terrarium. Though, I suppose if the ferret were to get in, then yeah bye bye gecko. But as long as they aren't out of their little cage thingies at the same time, I'm sure it will be fine.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

Hi misheeru;

Ferret's are notorious for being able to get into almost anything so watch it.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

Lol, yeah I know. I think I'll be okay. The one I'm thinking about getting, is one of the three my sister's family owns. He's awesome but a little on the chubby side (which makes him even cuter) so being all ninja and attacking my gecko is  more unlikely. The little fatty big_smile

I don't get it. Ferrets have legs.

Ferrets do have legs and sharp little teeth.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

Yes, I saw a video once of a mongoose fighting a cobra. The mongoose won.

Yea, they kill snakes rather easily by tiring them out.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

but it took the Mongoose like, 3 minutes. And then it went for the cobra's neck, shook it, and then dragged it away. It was pretty awesome we all made bets.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

I thought it was munsgoose. But you are right. Mongeese is the plural of mongoose. Also, according to Wikipedia, mongooses is okay.

Hi misheeru;

It is an interesting link. I never heard of kine for instance.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

I haven't heard of alot of those.
I found 'goosefoots' hilarious and I didn't know that mouse was mice (well I knew that part) but that the plural form for more then one computer mouse is 'mouses'.

Re: And the beasts of the field...

Re: And the beasts of the field...

LOL!


“We know, on the authority of Mouses, that longer than six thousand years the world did not exist.”

“Let me tell you something that we 'sraelis have against Mouses. (t)He(y) took us 40 years through the desert in order to bring us to the one spot in the Middle East that has no oil!”

“And Mouses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according to their goings out.”
