Absolutely, my plan is to publish my findings. There is some interesting and somewhat perplexing stuff going on with dietary lipids with O. rubescens.
Nancy, I have actually never been bit. I have handled them a reasonable amount, but have avoided their beak like the plague. They seem to be pretty aggressive at times trying to pull my hand/fingers towards their mouth. Especially when I have to fast them before testing. Anyhow, my major prof has been bit long before I was a student here, but had no ill effects.
