    Think he means to say that he's always been interested in scorpions, but now he's actually got the feeders needed to keep them, so now he's actually getting more scorps because he can. 

    Ah, I am beginning to understand. The interest has always been there, but the ability has not.

    Thanks,

    I wouldn't say that my interest in them has really spiked that much of recent, but my feeder roach/isopod availability has. 😛

    Huh. Seems to me you have gotten more scorpions as of late.

    You trying to tell me something? Do fellow bloggers get a discount 😜?

    Thanks,

  3. Hello all, the May Meeting will be the 16th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, most likely on Skype.
    Still looking at keeping meetings virtual due to covid-19. While this does have disadvantages and I'd much rather meet in person, it does allow us some flexibility in terms of speakers. Stay tuned for more info on that.

    Looking forward to seeing all who can make it!

    Thanks,

    I've asked him in PMs, and sadly, I believe his nymphs died only weeks after hatching, perhaps due to their oothecae being surgically opened up for them rather than it hatching in a more natural manner, the nymphs could have been just a little too underdeveloped or something... 

    That's too bad. These large species are certainly being a pain to get established in captivity.

    Thanks,

    I have seen some cool pictures on your website. :) 

    Thank you! Hopefully gonna get some more roach photos in soon with the April post.

    Are you alluding to something else however...?

    Thanks,

    What about trades? :) 

    Well, shipping prices went up where I am (though I need to check with the actual post office and not just the local private mailing center), and I already have done quite a few trades recently, so I need to conserve what funds I have.

    Now that you brought it up however, why do you ask?

    Thanks,

    Orangeheads…..I have huge colonies that have never had supplemental heat. They actually generate their own heat.....

    That is incredible! And to think I'm down to three specimens...do you sell 🤣?

    Just kidding, I'm running low on invertebrate cash right now with a bunch of other projects going on...

    Thanks,

    ...soooo don't take Mantid Airways y'all. I made it to Florida, but you know how they say "Roach shall not live by defensive secretions alone?" They must have been kidding, you need them on an airline like Mantid Airways; it is NOT roach-friendly. 5 stars for service, 0 stars for protecting their passengers.

    Anyway, I'm here! Where all the other Deropeltis who said they were coming?

    If you can find people that will think its funny, go for it!  

     

    When you are the leader of an invertebrate club, its not hard to find people who will think its funny ;)...

    Not trying to be rude or anything either by the way, I just found that genuinely hilarious. Put a smile on my face :D.

    Thanks,

    Aww man . . . what a ridiculous oversight!  I've been keeping bugs for over 20 years . . . just goes to show that even us 'old timers' can make a super rookie mistake!  

    Thank you for pointing that out . . . yes, I've been meaning to type Porcellio hoffmannseggi this whole time . . . 

    Guess that brings me back to my original question . . . Any good care info or links for Porcellio hoffmannseggi?  

     

    I hope you don't mind that I might be telling this story for a while ;D...

    Thanks,

  11. Hello fellow enthusiasts, due to the covid-19 situation (unless otherwise announced), the April Meeting will be carried out online via Skype, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on the 18th (Saturday). I will send out a link to join the meeting shortly.

    Despite the downside of not being able to do what we usually do at physical meetings, we do have the upside of having guest enthusiasts join us from afar, in this case @Hisserdude, who will be joining us to answer questions and just talk shop; exciting, thanks again Hisserdude!

    If anyone needs help with anything due to the current situation or with figuring out Skype, don't hesitate to reach out and let me know! I'm happy to be of service wherever I can.

    Thanks,

    Arthroverts
