Day 122: Toasted Prey

There are two basic kinds of prey – “plain” and “toasted.”

In nearly all cases, “toasted” prey tastes better.

As a bonus, it also tends to be easier to bring down (on account of how it is feeling all warm and, well, toasty…causing it to drop its guard).

Once captured, a simple tutorial can smooth the ingestion process.

Hi Mom - I just captured this large toasted prey. It was easy!
