Severus Posted June 29, 2008 Share Posted June 29, 2008 I have an idea that I wanted to run by "the masters". I have a desire to better learn the names(both scientific and common) and how to identify the different species of roaches in the hobby(some are easy, I know, but I get confused when it comes to the similar ones). I think a type of flashcard would be a great way to learn for me, and I'm sure others as well. I could see this type of thing being available in a biology classroom, and, if done well, surely it would be of interest to those in the hobby as well. I think on the front of the cards there should be a clear picture of the roach, maybe with the common name and/or the scientific name on it. On the back, there definitely needs to be both names, a description of the roach, and comparable species that may be confused with it, and how to tell them apart(if possible by sight). There should also be cards with tips on how to go about identifying an unknown roach, and other tid bits of information that would benefit the hobby. I believe that this could be an interesting project that could be "renewed" every year or every so many years, to add potential new species in the hobby, as well as to possibly change the photos of the existing ones. What do you guys think of this idea? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
