I think you can!

Mariposa: Pretty cool way to get to know one another, huh?

Arjay: Thanks... I didn't make it though; someone over in Zimbabwe did! :)

Cheerio: I love how exotic it looks.

Sandee: And the best part is it's made from recycled cans! Yay for recycling!

FlyingMonkeys: Thanks for stopping by! :)

Morgen: Cool! (See?)

Jamie said...

That is really unique and interesting. Other than the instant widowhood after mating they are very interesting creatures.

Janna said...

Jamie: I think the whole "devouring-after-mating" is part of what MAKES them so interesting. :)

Travis said...

Well that's one use for an old can.

Marilyn said...

The devouring thing would make splitting the property up easier when you break up with somebody. What's mine is mine and what was his is mine... Seems fair to me.

It's a cool thing to do with a can.

Janna said...

Travis: I think it's clever!

Marilyn: Exactly! It totally eliminates the need for a divorce attorney! How convenient!
