    Suggestions for odd/unique inverts to breed?

    The larvae of most easily bred darkling beetles are about the same size as mealworms, so right around the smallest of the stuff you're offering. The spider beetles would definitely be too small for large chameleons though; they're only about 3 mm in length.

    Suggestions for odd/unique inverts to breed?

    Darkling beetles and spider beetles might be good options. There are a bunch of neat darkling beetle species that are easy to keep and breed (mostly the smaller ones). Although the adults can't really be used as feeders due to the very hard exoskeletons and defensive chemicals they have a lot of the time, the larvae certainly can. Spider beetles such as Mezium affine are very odd, quirky, little guys and both the adults and larvae should be able to be used as feeders. The larvae are very small and you'd probably need sort of a sifting contraption to collect them out of the enclosure, but the adults are easily collected. I will mention that only about 1/4 of the adults' abdomens are filled with meat though, so I don't how nutritious they would be and they also like to play dead, which might take some getting used to for whatever insectivore they're getting fed to.

    I almost thought you were trying to be funny at first, but I guess not. LOL Thanks!

    This photo thread won't be nearly as prolific as the one by the same name on the mantidforum since roaches are about 75% of what I keep at the moment, but nonetheless, it should be a fun, little place. Let's begin with my most miniscule and possibly most otherworldly beetle species, your favorite pest, Mezium affine. Mezium affine Adults

    Good morning everyone. 😛 I've decided to start up a photo thread on my cockroach collection in its entirety here after finally learning how to easily share pictures thanks to the one and only, @Hisserdude. I'll go ahead and get things rolling with the current crowning jewel of my collection, my smallish nymph pair of Rhinoceros Roaches, Macropanesthia rhinoceros.
