We need pioneers in the hobby like this man.

Does anyone know the temp of the tanks? How about food? Maybe beef heart?

Has he done any breeding?
I guess you could say that he's aHEAD of us all.

If you can't get human brains, you shouldn't keep this species.

Do your research before you walk into your LZS people!

You know, i just cant for the life of me accept that human brains are a natural food for zombies. They are packaged up into a very difficult to get to spot, it would be like having one unscrew the lid to a jar.

I think liver would be a good place to start. Then likely the heart after that. The rest of the organs just dont have much bulk to offer sufficient nutrients.

I have never, ever thought of that. That's an excellent point.
