Oh sure the poses are great, and the carving is outstanding, and the detail is incredible...but what species of worm will she be feeding them? Jester

The carving is really spiffy. As for the worm she's feeding, I hope it's a European Nite Crawler because that's the knid we raise here for bait sales.
