One of the things the kids are excited to see are the different bugs and other living creatures that call PNG home. This fall our budding entomologists have been busy collecting preying mantises (I had to google that to see what the plural was) and frogs. After the capture of the creature comes a trip to the pet store for crickets to feed these itty-bitty pets.
Apparently, there are banana spiders in PNG that brave missionary kids roast and eat. I don’t know if our little MKs will be among those brave enough to actually eat them, but I’m sure I will be introduced to many new insects as the kids explore. In a tropical climate, no doubt they will find more than a few inside as well as outside.
