KitKatie329 Posted January 4, 2012 Share Posted January 4, 2012 I just wanted to make a little appreciation post for out little insect friends. I am a college graduate who became permanently disabled shortly after I got my degree. I was crushed.I had an amazing job lined up in my field and had to let it go. I had always been into insects from a small age. How many 4-year-olds will tell you they want to be an entomologist? A year and a half ago I decided to set up a small G. portentosa tank after I saw one at the Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans. A year and a half later I have breeding programs going on, 16 species with many more on my list, and I have decided to make this my job. I can still be sick and take care of all my roach bins, and they provide me endless entertainment in their display tanks when I am stuck in bed. Because of this hobby, I now have new goals that I am working toward and the motivation to carry them out. How has this hobby improved your life?
