My pet stink bug!

I don't have a photo of him, but he's over here on an electrical cord.

It's very cold outside and he's been in here since lastnight, poor thing would freeze anywhere but inside the house!

I just put out a bottlecap with some water and half a pecan because I read they eat pecans.

Dunno if he'll ever find it, but I hope he does! It's right in front of him!

They really are super cute and look so badass!

I've rescued a lot of stink bugs over the years right in my hand and whatnot, none of them have ever stanked on me!

He just walked over to the edge of the table, braced himself, then flew straight into the blinds and hit the floor...

He walked right past the bottlecap.

I'm sensing angst.

I feel bad for him though, like...

He'll probably just kill himself flying around in here.

Usually when I find them dead, it seems like they died of dehydration.

I think that's what'll get him eventually.

I tried!

I'll leave the bottlecap with waterlogged pecan out all day just in case he ever wises up.

I think stink bugs must be prehistoric. I can't find any info about it though.

It must really take a lot for them to feel threatened, because I've picked a lot of them up and put them outside etc. and they never let off any odor.

Getting picked up and carried (some instances less graceful/careful than others) by a massive unknown giant would qualify as feeling threatened if you ask me, but...

Hmmm. Just makes me wonder about how much they can sense, how they perceive, etc.

I opened the blinds a little bit so he could get up next to the window. Maybe he'll sense how cold it is and put two and two together that it's dangerous out there for him right now.

The issue with these winged folks is that they always try to go toward the light, and always try to fly up higher and higher.

He's sunning himself on the reverse side of the blinds...

It's making things seem deceptively warm, when really it's in the low teens outside.

Poor feller, I feel like he just isn't gonna understand the necessity of his captivity.

I'm trying to give him a good life! I wonder if they eat grapes.

It's my job to be that annoying person who likes stuff most people in their right mind just absolutely would not.

He was directly underneath a light, crawling up my cabinet/wall thingy, so the color is a bit intense.
