In the vast barren landscapes of the southern Kalahari, Sociable Weaver Birds assume ownership of the telephone poles that cut across their habitat.Their burgeoning nests are at once inertly statuesque and teeming with life. The twigs and grass collected to build these nests combine to give strangely recognisable personalities to the otherwise inanimate poles.

Universal Donor
Bambu weaning bowls, coconut water, breastmilk.

Coconut water is almost identical in compostion to human blood plasma.
During WW2 coconut water was used as emergency blood plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. The coconut is a natural water filter that takes almost 9 months to filter each litre of water. The water travels through many fibres being purified where it is stored away sterile in the nut itself.
The exact integrated properties of breast milk are not entirely understood.
