:A couple of my friends are doing masters in respiratory physiology on them, and their lab has a partnership with a lab in Brasil... so they brought back a cohort of them, since goin' back and forth to Brasil from Vancouver's a tad impractical.

I think that's great that your friends are under taking a scientific study of T. merianae, as I'm sure we are all interested in their physiology. Is there any particular reason they chose T. merianae? I'm sure we'd all be interested in any results. It's hard to find hard science on them, let alone even a good care sheet. He seems to have a great terperment for coming from Brazil.
