    Thanks. :) I think mine ate a lot of Devonian carrots. :D 

    I think you'll find they didn't have carrots then. 

    Palaeocarrots, is the correct term. :D

    I adore the eyes on these.

    Yes, they had come a long way from the Palaeocarrot by then. 

    I guess these were Neocarrots. 

    Or something.

    And here is an unsolicited little carrot factoid: when growing carrots it is essential to keep them separated from their wild cousins, Queen Anne's Lace, as the latter is dominant and inedible.

    I shall be sure to post guard camels to keep the Queen Anne's Lace away from my carrot patch.
