Can you breed two different types of tarantula together? I want to cross a C. huahini with A. avicularia
I think it only works whithin the same genus.

Seconding that they probably need to be of a similar species, but honestly, for what purpose?

This probably isn't the best place to ask, i should probably go to researchgate or something, but I was wondering what the opinion was on doing 'diversity' statistics with taxa at the Order level. I am comparing the invertebrate assemblages at two different locations and I have sorted the data only down to order. Not sure if it would be any good using diversity indices unless I was using 'evenness' or something. Anyway im just bored and want a break from writing and an excuse to post on 4chan and include a photo of a cute springtail. Im just a postgrad loser trying to get through this and then end up working at starbucks or someshit.
'For fun' is a good enough purpose. We aint nazis we not against race mixing.
Is that what a springtail looks like up close?? Neat.

Yeah, I put a fingerling potato in her enclosure and it took off growing like a weed, so she's had a ton of roots to snack on. She's double the size she was when she got here. Unfortunately like a lot of inverts, she's a bit of a pet hole. But it makes the times I do see her all the more special!

Yeah that is just one of the many kinds of springtails that exist. The sminthuridae springtails are the cutest roundest ones. Tomoceridae sorts are the more common sort that people put into their enclosures as cleanup crew
That makes sense, thank you. I'd like to see more springtails if you;'d like an excuse to post more.

Sure. When doing my labwork i found a particularly brightly-colored springtail. Bit like tiger stripes.
Oh, it's a bit like a springtail morph. I love how varied they can be, I'm just used to seeing Tomoceridae.

I think this one is Entomobryidae. Not 100% sure. I love how hairy they are.

Is there a more baller invert name than the horrid king assassin bug?
This is cute as hell.

I found a very big and very brave fly
He is cute
Say something nice about him
flesh flies are nasty. when you swat them they start shitting out living maggots
It never fails to surprise me on how fast people here can identify an insect by an image alone.
I live in a city, so Ive mostly just seen fruit flies and normal house flies.
This flesh fly landed on the clipboard I was carrying, refused to move even when I tried to shoo it by swiping near it with my hand, and even stayed when I placed the clipboard onto a table.
I didnt know they gave live birth though, good thing I didnt squish it.
Well this is now my least favorite insect.

Cheers, my mom sent me this because she doesn't know what it is. About 12mm long. Is that a pupa? If yes, what species? Central europe here.
Is this a phone camera?
Thats pretty high quality, nice
Usually not. There are few species (e.g. Psalmopoeus cambridgei and P. irminia) that apparently are still very closely related.

The great migration has begun. Don't really have a collection system in place but I opened up the bin today and found a few climbing out.

Hierodula majuscula
Any beetle breeders? Looking for good places to by larvae for D.tityus or other larger beetles. In California
I know Bugs in Cyberspace has them occasionally. They're out right now, but the owner might be able to direct you to a breeder.
Do you know where I can find resources regarding what can and can't be brought in per state?

Tried to find the rules online, but it's super ambiguous and I haven't found a site that lists species, just "need a permit for certain species"
That's a tricky thing to look up unfortunately. I know Florida and California are, as a general rule, strict as hell. It might be easier to pick your state and research from there.

Feels breddy good brehs. A shame I'm probably gonna ruin it when I wipe down the enclosure to get rid of all the poop.

my c. darlingi, after 72 hours on the lam, has been recovered a whopping 2 feet away from its enclosure
That's a stunning spider, wow.
Anyone have sea urchins? Mine aren't eating lately and I am worried.

Bumping with my Paravaejovis spinigerus that doesn't seem to know how growing works
If the community finds out who you are, nobody will trade or buy from you ever again and you'll be stuck with a bunch of mutt spiderlings that will look like shit
