What inverts would you want/want more of in the hobby?


Recommended Posts

More harvestmen, click beetles, exotic darkling beetles and camel crickets would be nice.

More Periplaneta japonica. A roach that doesn't mind the cold seems very... housable right now.

More brightly coloured roaches. Basically any photo in For The Love Of Cockroaches with 'Australia' or 'Singapore' in the caption. (Australian imports, a boy can dream)

More Grammostola iheringi tarantulas. Which is why I just ordered a juvie male... 😎

Eurycotis improcera(my current favorite roach) as well as Mardi gras roaches. Forget their scientific name but they are so colorful. Also more hemithyrsocera species and just small/tiny roaches in general. Also I’ve always loved tiger and longhorn beetles but not a lot are being breed in the US at least

Maddi grad roaches

Probably referring to Polyzosteria mitchelli. Yeah I'd love those too, maybe one day...

Just a fun hypothetical question!

For me, it would be ... wasps

I've heard of people keeping wasps. 

You are braver than I am

I wish Gryllodes sigillatus was more available in the mantis hobby but also the reptile/invertebrate hobby in general. They're higher in protein and do not carry the bacteria that kills mantises. Although some mantis species are sensitive to them and can die from them, many species eat them just fine. They'd be better for reptiles and other invertebrates too that eat them. I don't keep crickets myself but it would be nice of they were more common.
