You can't really blame him because he was very young at the time. I mean, they don't even live more than a few months so, you know, half a year old at the most.

No, he has unpleasant encounters with fauna. None of them seem to like him. Maybe the fauna in question are just evil.

How do we know it is just the fauna that hates Brad? Maybe the flora does too, but can't express itself like the fauna does?

And what about the fungi? I think the mushrooms regard him with great suspicion.

But not the slime molds - they are very fond of Brad.

I don't think so. I've seen them sporing over his books with great pleasure.

I've been taught how to hold a Monarch properly. It was part of the things needed for my MNR rearing/tagging permit.
I know how to feed them, too, but that's a skill I haven't had to use in practice. The holding is useful when tagging them, obviously.

I have never been unfriendly by a bunny. And mushrooms think I'm a fun guy.

Default Getting back to the topic

My cousin used to grab butterflies by the wings and hold them for about 10 minutes. After he let go, the scales were gone leaving only clear wings.
