  1. Made these into wallpapers if anyone is interested: https://sta.sh/07ea4zjiq2u https://sta.sh/01u933hl4mly
  2. Here are some example pics. If google drive doesn’t work or you need permission, just let me know and I will allow access to whoever wants to look at these This is the box I currently have of drying specimens: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19Aa3JatRtOqxmHqrWx4Kzay-ZIUwa1Yw The two beetles on the right as well as the dubia roach on the bottom left are drying “mummified” style, whereas the wasps, honeybee, and large rhinoceros beetle are drying “plumped” to look more lifelike. I have not started working on either of the butterflies, but just as a note, you cannot dip Lepidoptera in
  3. Hey y’all! I actually love insect taxidermy and will do my best to help you out! In order to have insects in a display case like the one listed above, pins are still required, they are just removed before the final placement in the cotton-lined boxes seen there. Pinning may not be your desired look, but once your insects are pinned, the pins can easily be removed and your bugs will look magnificent as they are. There are two main preservation looks you can get with pinned insects: 1. Display style - Wings, legs, etc are spread out and posed in order to show the most aesthet
  4. Thank you for the help! She is extremely dehydrated and looks quite a bit different than my other hisser, so you’re absolutely right, I think she’s a hybrid of some sort. We’ll see how this goes
  5. Today I went to Petco with my gf to pick up some supplies for our new adopted rats, and I happened to go through the reptile section / see the feeders, and I “saved” (stole) the only living hisser in the whole aisle. I just wanted to ask if there’s any health issues I should expect coming from Petco’s stock, and communicable diseases, or other concerns I should have before I introduce her to my colony. I use dubias as feeders for my leopard gecko, and I don’t want them to catch anything from this new roach, as I’ll eventually be housing them together as long as I can see that she’s not being a
  6. I don’t know of this will help, it my girlfriend vapes in the same room I keep my roaches, much to my surprise, and although it was unsettling at first, there have been no negative results as far as we can tell so far. It’s been about 6 months since I first found out she was vaping in their room. My roaches are still eating, breeding, and acting all around as they should. I would prefer she doesn’t do it around them, but sometimes she forgets and it happens. I’m sure an air freshener is chemically very different from a vape, but it acts in a similar fashion, spreading scented liquids around v
  7. I agree with the above user. It’s not uncommon for smaller or weaker nymphs to get eaten, but I have never heard of an adult being eaten by a litter/ other adult. Hopefully he is just hiding and will return to the surface soon. Many other people have individuals in their colony that like to scare them too, haha.
  8. Hey everyone i haven’t had time to draw just for me recently, so I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in some art requests. I would love to get more practice drawing bugs, so if you have a favorite species or a beloved pet, please share photos of them here. Hopefully during this upcoming spring break, I will have just enough time to sketch them all out. Examples of my work here: https://www.deviantart.com/shon2
  9. Can't wait to see what you post! Your work sounds very interesting and I'm happy to see another person who cares deeply about the environment. Although, that's not really hard to find here!
  10. Thank you so so much for this! I really appreciate it 😆 I would love to do some actual scientific illustrations, whenever I can get the time to sit down and draw for something outside of class, I'd love to do studies based off your work/ with similar intentions. Can you share your work here? I'd love to see it, but no big deal if you can't upload em.
  11. I love these! Your work is great, it looks very accurate to the cuties in the photos
  12. What is it about the legs that gives you trouble? :0 And what medium do you work in? I'm sure your art still looks pretty roachy, even if you see details that aren't completely accurate. The legs on my sketches aren't perfect either! :'D
  13. Got the opportunity to draw some of my roaches for a school assignment These are just sketches, but I would love to do some nicely rendered art of them soon. I would love to see more art of bugs while I'm here! If any of y'all wanna share your art here, please do
  14. Looking for leftovers from fish stores might work! The driftwood sold there is comparable to cork, and typically doesn't mold as easily. It's not cheap, but it lasts longer and may be worth your time. I'd rather spend $10 on something that'll last a year than $5 on something that'll only last a month.
  15. Adorable profile picture! :D

    Do you remember who the artist is?
