Ask for E-MS Kit 9. Liquid phase H2O must be present
*Important! (and often forgotten) - without a compensator, your humans will be lethargic and may fail to adopt their proper bipedal posture.
These fascinating creatures have acquired the reputation of exotica, and are often assumed to be the exclusive domain of the specialist. Not so! Keeping pets as delicate as humans is never straightforward, but it can be immensely rewarding.
- Humans are easily crushed
- Never pick them up using your proboscis, as your breath will attack their flesh
The main investment in raising humans is in procuring a suitable environmentally-controlled enclosure. The animals themselves are relatively cheap and readily available.
Don't be dismayed by a high-initial death-rate!
With persistence, most collectors can establish a breeding colony.
Remove dead humans promptly, as their remains cause disease and may even give rise to emotional distress in survivors. (Once isolated, however, there is no need for immediate disposal. Necrophiles will find their unusual mode of decomposition interesting).
Things You Should Know About Humans:
- Like other lifeforms from their system of origin (P3 of G112/06, Type B2Alpha), they are sexual breeders of simple type (two gender variants)
- They communicate sonically
- Primary sensory input through mid-spectrum visual stimulation
- Secondary body-surface physical sensors
- Physical/Chemical/Biological resilience all extremely low
- Vestigial regenerative capacity
- Minimal telepaths
- Live-bearing (survival-rate typically ~ 20%)
