a great lost

June 15, 2009 at 11:09 am (Uncategorized)

it is sad for me to tell everyone that Gristle has died due to old age complications.

i found him motionless in his enclosure at 1700h 14 June.

from examining the body it is determined that he died around 13 June.

when i first got him, i knew that he wouldn’t have long to live considering the bad state of health he was in.

i guess his time has come.

i have preserved his body in alcohol an has taken a number of detailed pictures of the carapace, cheala, telson, book lung, pectinal teeth, genital oppucolum and other various parts.

the pictures will be loaded in good time.

I will miss you Gristle. May you rest in peace in the land of God.
