Meet Steggy. She might not have very much of a brain, but she makes up for that with the softness of her heart. There’s not a whole lot that’ll surprise her (thanks to Pete’s training), and she’ll let just about anybody clamber on her back. 🙂

So after a brief look down below, I encourage you to take a look at the resources and see the amazing variety of crickets and lacewings that survive to the modern day.Continue reading
