Matt K Posted June 12, 2009 Share Posted June 12, 2009 Sadly, there are really cool species of bugs out there that flatly do not thrive (or even live) in captivity and in my opinion should absolutely not be collected. A fine example of this is any variety of pill-millipedes. Many are very colorful and beautiful; fantasic in form, and yet nobody knows how to keep them alive in captivity. These types of animals should have more documented field observations prior to collecting for the bug hobby which (if not dooming the species to extinction) can have a significant impact on niche ecosystems where they are found. While I believe captive culture can be a really good thing for some species, there are others that have been tried again and again and again with a 100% failure rate- does this say something? What are your thoughts ??? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
