  1. Billions of Cicadas are about to swarm the United States in their largest numbers since 2004. Will they be arriving in a town near you? Check out my brand new YouTube video to learn about the impending emergence of Brood X. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. To all the moms out there, big and small, Happy Mother's Day! Here's a proud mother Wolf Spider (Tigrosa helluo) with her babies. ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ
  3. I was very surprised when I noticed my Eurycotis lixa scratching their backs on objects in their enclosure, similar to cats. ๐Ÿ˜… I might have observed the same behavior with other species too, but that's what pops to the top of my head. I was also quite bewildered when my Blaberus species hissed at me for the first time, without having read about the behavior prior.
  4. Happy Earth Day! ๐ŸŒŽ Today we celebrate the extraordinary planet we call home. The one unlike any other in existence! In an endless expanse of space and time, you, me, and every life form we've grown to know can be found nowhere else, but here. That's why it's of utmost importance to protect this treasure with all of our being. We must rekindle that curiosity that fueled us as kids, and let it burn bright yet again. We must preserve the life that we have left; not just what we find attractive or cute, but every denizen of the one living planet. The closer you look, the more you'll realize a
  5. No problem! Very nice - I could only dream to see Arenivaga in the wild, let alone in my own back yard. ๐Ÿ˜†
  6. @Hisserdude wrote a great care sheet on Arenivaga spp. care. ๐Ÿ™‚ Invertebrate Dude Caresheets: Arenivaga spp. (idcaresheets.blogspot.com)
  7. The primary thing to worry about with P.americana and cf. N. propinqua is just maintaining a moist environment - both won't do great in the long run if they're allowed to dry out too often. Rhyparobia cf. capelloi do swell with one moist corner and the rest of the enclosure dry. Not sure if you were looking for more info than that, but none of the species I mentioned are that tough, so there's not a lot more to add.
  8. Here's a care sheet that @Hisserdude wrote up on the species: Invertebrate Dude Caresheets: Pseudoglomeris magnifica (idcaresheets.blogspot.com)
  9. Indeed, but sometimes it's just inevitable with different developments in life. ๐Ÿ˜• At least Chen (@Forcep) does seem to be getting back into the hobby, if not quite as actively. I actually sent him a few species last November. ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. @Forcep hasn't posted on the forum in a few years, but when I checked in with him about the species in 2018, he had sent his colony away to a couple friends. Not sure what the status of this species in the hobby currently is though. Maybe @Hisserdude would know.
  11. No problem, glad to help! How small are the peppered roaches? It can be difficult to tell when they're very young, but after a couple molts, the last abdominal segments should become distinct. On the females, the last segment will be about 2-3 larger than on the males.
  12. I'm not sure on exact species, but the roach in the first picture belongs to the genus Paratropes and the second belongs to Eucorydia.
