    A big transparent plastic box with plenty of vegetation from my garden. mainly brambles, but other colourful plants too.

    NO it is NOT inhumane because STICK insects are remarkably similar to what their name would suggest!

    They hardly move at all and act as sticks all the time.

    It is surprisingly hard to spot them because they camouflage so well!
    :o: Yeah, I should have guessed that. I just remember they were vile little things!

    As pet owners do you think that the word 'own' lessens the value of your pet? How about 'how many pets do you foster'.

    Foster implies it being temporary. I don't ever really say I 'own' pets, I say I 'have' pets, but I don't really think there's an alternate word for own that means the same thing.

    really? to me it just implies providing care to someone not immediately close to you. Why do you think it's temporary?

    well if you foster an animal from the RSPCA or other rescue you're just looking after it until someone wants to adopt it.
