    a1154 you could try putting a frog in each hole and placing slugs up on the surface.

    The frogs should be of equal size and fitness, the holes should be of equal depth and the slugs should all be the same size and flavour. We want to cut out as much experimental error as possible.

    I will look into that pp.

    Oh.  Before official start of experimentation, i have another frog (liberated) and a moose (some hole eh?).  I dunno how to get the moose oot without getting bitten, so i have improvised a ladder and left it.

    I assumed slugs of the same colour would taste the same?

    I drape toilet paper on the bath to let the spiders out.

    The moose was still there so i lifted it out in my hand, where it wriggled and ran up my sleeve, eeeeek! Thought these things only happened in jokes and sitcoms.

    Mooses are usually very adept at getting out of places. My pet meece escaped left right and centre and many's the happy hour my dad spent chasing them round his garage! image

    I drape a towel in the bath for spiders. Why do some people pronounce it tarl? Another one for the don't get thread...image

    Don't fancy inspecting my tarl ( you must know some posh people) for spiders. Will stick to the toilet paper in a manner of speaking
