About Me

Hi, my name's Joshua! :)

I have always been interested in "bugs", but only really started to dig into all the info I could find on them when I was about 11 years old. In 2014, I got my first pet invertebrates, which were two female ghost mantids. After owning them, I realized that this was an extraordinarily awesome hobby and one I never wanted to leave!

After them I continued to keep exclusively mantids. But after keeping thirteen of them and having numerous odd deaths, mismolts, and bacterial infections, I decided I would take a break from mantids and try out keeping some other kinds of inverts. In July of 2015, I purchased my first non-mantis pet insect, which was a large, male Gromphadorhina oblongonota nymph, who has since passed on and is the individual that lit the flame to my now raging fire for invert keeping!

In current times, I keep and breed arthropods of many different shapes, sizes, colors, and origins. 

I look forward to learning much more of the endless information and husbandry that exists on the most diverse group of animals on the planet, which, of course, are arthropods!
