I love animals and plants! I'm a folklorist, cultural anthropologist, and artist, and my hobby and love is ecology and biology. I'm no stranger to exotics, having had animals my whole life (from livestock to house pets to injured wildlife), but relatively new to keeping inverts beyond a day or two of observation. I wish I'd thought to keep them sooner because I'm having a blast. Currently working on a book about DIY animal habitats.
