    Thoughts on new layout?

    What are your thoughts on the new layout? Personally, I will miss the classic look and this will take some getting use to. Otherwise, great job Peter!

    Beetle Wish List

    Many people out there thrive to have the most beautiful beetles from around the world. However it is illegal to possess invasive species in some countries. This forum is dedicated for fun and only to see which beetles people want or interest them the most. I will start by sharing my wish list down below. 1) Cheirotonous macleayi formosanus pair 2) Cyclommatus metallifer finae pair 3) Dorcus titanus palawanicus pair 4) Mecynorrhina polyphemus confluens pair 5) Phalacrognathus muelleri pair

    Favorite animal and why?

    Growing up, we all had our favorite animal. My favorite animal was always a rat but my mom never let me have one. She thought they were gross creatures. I obsessed over rats, even wearing a belt as a tail some days. Sounds funny but it's true. After many years later, I got my first rat and named her Britney. She was the most smart and loving pet that I've ever had. I even got my mom to like her! She said hi to Britney every day and held her. However, Britney became sick with a respiratory infection and had a few tumors so I had to put her down. To this day, rats still remain my favorite animal. Which animal is your favorite and why?

    Not to me man, there are many other cool arthropods in my opinion. And I've had the craziest kinds of beetles, over 14 species and they don't compare to what stuff I have now.

    Does Anyone here Check on their larvae?

    Unless it's to switch them into larger containers or substrate change then no. I have a pretty good schedule on my species growth rates.

    Wrote that when tipsy AF one night, probably should stay off the forum when that happens but now I could elaborate. When you are first getting into the beetle hobby, it's fun, pure and unique. I went a different route which consisted of importing many different species and breeding them. I also was doing U.S. native species too. After a while and having many species, the fun started to go away. Many friends wanted larvae, substrate, supplies, etc. This put pressure on me. From what started as a hobby turned into a job and I really wasn't enjoying it anymore. That's why I moved into keeping many different arachnids and invertebrates, because they're way easier to care for, require low maintenance, and are super cool. And yes, I do import these and sell them but it's WAY more enjoyable than beetles. This is just my opinion. It's not like I hate beetles, they will always have a place in my heart. And on my skin forever; I have a few large scale beetle tattoos that will always remind me of that point in my life.
