    the buttstuff...never interested.
    Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!

    Are you going to start eating prey animals? Perhaps you can just start with guinea pig or rabbits. You can get those at the pet store, maybe even the humane society. Although I suppose they wouldn't think it very humane of you.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    Starting squat: 45lbs. Highest squat: 167.5 x 2. Current Deadlift: 195 x 3

    Don't waste your time with the humane society....the moment you explain that your there for dinner they get all uppity about things. No no we won't give you this poor dog that we are going to euthanize anyhow! I swear, what a waste......

    "Mineral concentrations in whole prey vary considerably, depending upon prey
    type and, to some extent, age. Neonates often, but not always, contain a lower proportion of
    total ash compared with adults."

    So, do we eat babies or not?

    On one hand they may have had less time to accumulate environmental toxins, however that may be debateable given the health and lifestyle of the mother.

    Who said you had to tell them WHY you are getting the animals from them?

    You can make up some other excuse if they ask.
