:Nice scars :) Is that where the name came from?
The scars are possibly from a run-in with a lawnmower. He was captured on a frisbee golf course.
The name comes from the game Nibbles found on older Windows machines that came equipped with QBasic--there were two games, "Gorilla" and "Nibbles." The Nibbles game was a lot like the "Snake" game on Nokia cell phones. "Nibbles"="Snake"=seemed like a good name for a flesh-and-blood snake. :)
:If somebody would tell me how to post pics here I've got some shots of T. elegans "constricting" mice :D
The first mouse I tried was live, and Nibbles attempted to constrict it, but he is inept and the mouse almost gained the upper hand (biting him). I've frozen and thawed since.
I upload my pics to my website McMartinVille and then include the links as a normal HTML "img src" line.
