    River Cane/North American Bamboo

    I see. So it is not very digestible, but not toxic either (it does appear that people can eat it, however). I did notice that this is a different species, but I don't know how much of a difference that makes.

    River Cane/North American Bamboo

    I had been thinking about getting some River Cane (Arundinaria Gigantea) for a potential fast- growing evergreen food for our sulcata, and for its erosion control (also, it looks quite nice). However, I have found conflicting information about the toxicity of bamboo. Some sources say it is...

    Grasses...

    I would think that multiple prairie grasses would be more nutritious than just bermuda and crab grass Ones I've planted so far (including the above) bermuda grass little bluestem big bluestem buffalograss

    Dubias

    I think part of the fear factor is that it's hard to know what one is going to do next. Sure, it may not hurt you, but it's startling to see an arthropod go from completely still to running around like a maniac. With vertebrates, it's easier to read body language. The only "bug" I'm sort of...

    I've been doing a little more research and the only toxic North American grasses I can find seem to be in the Panicum and Sorghum genus, and this seems to mainly affect horses. The other thing to look out for may be anything carrying a parasitic fungus or nematode...

    I'm not a huge fan of predatory invertebrates as pets, but mantises are quite nice

    ha I see what you mean. It just confused me since there is a sedge with that name

    That Is what I had been thinking. I should add, however, that Chasmanthium latifolium Is a North American forest grass, and doesn't usually stray too far from trees. Also, on number 1, I believe that it may be a tropical crabgrass. And about Java grass, do you mean this kind?

    In need of HELP! and info on 4 month old red footed tortoise

    I don’t know much about redfoots, but that enclosure looks like it has an open top, which lowers humidity.

    Imagine telling people from 1922 that we would be fighting off artificial humans on our own personal machine that can do the work of hundreds of humans 100 years from now…

    It doesn't really look like the rest of the St. Augustine in the yard. It sorta has the seed/ flower head of a Finger Grass, but has a more turf-like growth style.

    Grasses...

    I've beat this question down already, but I thought I'd try one more time. There have been some grasses I have tried to find the safety of, but without luck 1. I believe this to be finger grass 2. Blue Grama (Bouteloua gracilis) 3. Indian/Wood grass (Sorghastrum nutans) 4. Inland Sea Oats...
