Leaves, fruits, mams, arths, occasional gulps of water, pebbles to aid digestion-whatever had food value could be his meal, provided it was not poisonous.
And the little warm hairy juicy mams had emerged from their tunnels and hideaways to tread boldly in the open, overrunning forest and glade.
The mams learned quickly, however, and he found them to be much more wary of him after one or two of their number had been taken from any particular assemblage.

There were small mams in far greater abundance in the north country, while the huge reps were comparatively sparse.
Through increasingly leafy trees they went, where mams twittered in the branches, and on into the grassy elevation where arths swarmed in sunlight, but Ornette did not slacken her pace, running up until the air became cool.
