The other day, I was examined the contents of the digestive tract of Giant isopod who died.
in individuals captured after the date has not passed, it does not eat food in the aquarium.
Stomach contents, you believed that you were eating in the food or the seabed in the trap at the time of capture.
Previously, there was a thing that was introduce another individual of the contents, inside also this individual digestive tract had been filled with undigested material.
Color is black, different impression until now.
Weight of stomach contents is 128.5g, because body weight was about 1000g, you pretty now that it was at once ate a large amount of food for the body weight.
In texture you whether referred to as a “massive”, “soggy” This time, such as the internal organs of something if from the color feel of the … squid?
Smell is stronger, but because it was unexpectedly pond likely feel it when I smell, I tried to make sure the taste is a little lick.
Not surprisingly unpleasant, here also certainly (such as, for example, Ayu visceral salted “Uruka”) taste like salted fish visceral.
Even I feel taste.
When you leave for a while and left at room temperature (22 ℃), so went more and more soluble in muddy, I felt that you are self-digestion. Do Will contains a large amount of enzyme.
After that, I was a survey of solid was strained with a net, but this time in as long as it was confirmed by eye scales of fish are not included at all, there was still many just squid beak.
Most but is small enough width 7mm, even things like pieces of a large squid beak is in.
This individual seems to have apparently eat squid.

According to the source of that image, this happy guy was discovered after someone cut down a cherry tree, and one of the commenters believed it to be the larva of some type of long-horned beetle. Beetles come in all shapes and sizes, and the Xixuthrus Heros is one of the largest.

These goats live in a small region in southwestern Morocco where the Argan tree grows. Although the region is semi-arid desert and there’s fodder elsewhere, they love argan berries. They’re goat candy. Since the goats can’t reach them from the ground, they learned to climb Argan trees.
But that’s not the weird part.
When the goats poop, local women pick out the hard undigested nuts, crack them, extract the seeds, mash and grind them up, and produce argan oil – all by hand. It gets stranger: only women are allowed to do it.
Women […] run the entire industry, which is an incredible fact considering that Morocco is a rather patriarchal society. Only women are taught to make argan oil, and they are the sole gatekeepers to the centuries-old method. Much of the country’s oil is made in cooperatives that allow women the opportunity to work and make money independently [via].
Then they rub it on their faces, put it in their hair or eat it. TRUE.
But take this story a step further, and it becomes downright astounding. One sunny day, hundreds of years ago, some Berber women figured it out:
“Hey, Fatima! Bouchra! I found some goat crap under a tree. I bet there’s something in it that we can eat AND wear. Whaddya think? Don’t tell the guys.”
And the rest is history. But wait. There’s more:
The Berbers were the same people that produced Berber carpets, and had a hand in producing purple dye from seashells – the color of Roman Royalty. It’s also interesting to note that a large percentage of Berbers were Jews, Christians and Animists before those sects were marginalized by Islam in the 7th Century. The Barbary pirates were Islamic Berbers, thrived in the world-wide slave trade, and the word “barbarian” has etymological roots to the Berbers as well.
