Where can I get ants to play with?

Jan 2016
As a child in California I always loved ants. Now as an adult I want to pass that love on to my daughter. The problem is you can't get ants shipped here and every attempt to catch them wild has failed! Is there any program breeding them or groups authorized to import them?

Can a forest friend find a fabulous fir list?

Aug 2014
Just by living in the Pacific Northwest, it is obvious there must be at least a dozen varieties of fir trees. I would like a complete list with descriptions including the false ones and the true ones.

Do moths taste with their feet?

Feb 2014
I understand that butterflies taste with their feet and I have always assumed that moths do as well. However when I try to find out about it, all I see mentioned is butterflies. Can you tell me for sure whether moths taste with their feet or in some other way?
