Ferrum is a voracious eater (though, not quite
the ravenous monster his sister is) and will come out of his hide when
he thinks food is on the way. He's not the brightest bulb in the box, however;
I still catch him trying to eat his rodents sideways every so often.
Iron is well-known for its strength...and its
corrosive tendency. Iron easily oxidizes in air to form iron oxide--also
known as rust. Iron is responsible for the color
of our blood and the color of Martian rocks.
