About Me

Hi, my name's Joshua! :)

    I have always been interested in bugs but I started to really 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 Gromphadorhina oblongonota nymph, who is now a massive adult male and is the invertebrate that lit the flame to my now raging fire for invert keeping!

I currently keep beetles, cockroaches, isopods, spiders, and other wonderful invertebrates!

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 invertebrates!
