I got this book for a college class. It talks about flying foxes a lot. So, if you're into flying foxes, I would recommend it. It's a personal narrative (which in this case is a lot like a novel, but true). I don't have the book anymore, but I enjoyed it. It's about a scientist whose mother more

Some kinds of eels are at risk (and even farmed ones of them are wild-caught)

Eel meat is getting progressively more popular in the USA. So, I thought I'd let you all know something. Freshwater eels, must lay their eggs in the ocean, in the wild (and they must also hatch and develop there). Even farmed eels come from young, wild-caught eels. They do not breed these more
