Where are all the european creepy crawlies

October 30, 2007 at 5:38 pm 19 comments

Who knows that lizard that does press ups before it moves anywhere? Man I miss that crawly! I swear I haven’t gone crazy.

The other day I saw some birds and I was wondering what they were eating couz I have NEVER seen an insect since I came! None! Maybe its couz I was soo used to things crawling everywhere.  A fly here, a kamosquitoe there, caterpillar, snakes, rats etc. Wajama even in nairobi you still see a kafly and some mosquitoes. Heck even a snake sometimes

I am not even talking about the ugly crawlies, even the cute ones like butterflies, beetles (not the cow dung ones)

Nothing, Nada. No insects. And don’t tell me someone collected them and took them to the zoo, who collected the shetulas?

Seriously Mocha, and Farmgal where are the insects?

And No am not bored, I want insects

    I don’t know about you, but when the birds stop chirping and go away for winter around here, I go craazaay.

    You mean to tell me I will even stop seeing the birds? that makes me sooo sad

    Ah, missing the crawlies? I was fortunate where I lived in Stato was near some misitus that did not lack them crawlies. But as Makanga writes, once winter kicked in, then life was dead till spring. And so I’m glad to be back where life of the crawlies exists year round. They make for great photo subjects!

    I am missing those bugs! they just have a way of telling you umefika nyumbani

    I am not even sure I need to comment on this one – seeing that I was in KE and got my ‘quota’ of insecta sorted. *sigh* . But I agree with u – bar rats, there is no other ‘creepies’ in England – well, er.. Britain .. sorry .. the UK

    In Dubyaville (my galpal Devious would be so proud) there are flies – I mean seriously – ngi – inzi – the black ones no less – do u want a consignment of some?

    I love to the nth term squirrels – that is life to me
