  1. Sorry, no children under 10 permitted due on the dangerous nature of
    this tour. What remains untouched is precious little; harsh regions with few natural resources.
    This level is introductory and is designed for those that have little to no exotic animal experience.

  2. I would definitely not recommend these as ways to
    break the ice however. But you can’t just stand there grinning like an idiot until they
    finish laughing. After you do all this, you are ready to start performing in front of people for money.

  3. we learned that the Chinese are hording these metals. rare earth meatles are used for tvs and computers and phones. i don’t think they should be doing this because its just not fair.
