Giving “Ao Yun” his freedom

Click the photo to see Ào Yùn the Chinese cricket up close.


Every summer we get a pet cricket, and each summer we let it go before autumn.

This year’s cricket was named “Ào Yùn” (“Olympic”) in honour of the thousands of Chinese kids who were born this year and given the same name.

These are “100 day bugs,” so we only kept him a few weeks before letting him go.


They’re really weird because they breathe through their bellies.
