    I would like to request a specific section for scorpions and roaches, respectively. "Invertebrate pet talk" does not do them justice, and makes them seem like lesser animals. This would also draw new members if we can get those forum sections active. And change invertebrate pet talk to " Other invertebrates". The scorpion and roach hobbies will remain less popular than the tarantula hobby unless we make some changes, hobby wide. Most tarantula enthusiasts need some encouragement to branch out and start appreciating other inverts. Pics and discussions are good for that..And I know you at least lurk here sometimes, Josh..so if you would consider it I and a few others would appreciate it :) If I'm not mistaken, membership here is still growing steadily, it may help. There are many folks here that don't understand how a wide variety of invertebrates can really energize their hobby..just a suggestion for the suggestion box :)

    Totally agree. Unfortunately our mods seem to be really limited and getting an admin seems rather difficult.

    All I can suggest is that you each try messaging Josh. If he is swamped with messages on the same subject he may do something

    Hey, whoever did that, thanks :) It's not on the main page but it's there :p Now if only I can convert a few more people..and maybe get some Scorp masters in here..I thought the Venom List was coming back but I just don't think the scorp hobby is as popular..wth is wrong with people? Claws, stinger, armor, dirty dancing during mating(nobody puts baby in a corner)..communal adults...(that's a big'un, for me)..Yes, I've been stung three times, almost died twice, and my left hand is paralyzed, but they're beautiful creatures..lmfao,j/k..most of them are harmless, and I'm right handed anyway..ever here of The Stranger? Bonus :D

    I agree, we definitely need a roach section on here! I mean if scorpions can get their own forum, why not roaches? :p

    True. Not all roaches fit under the category "feeder insect". I have like nine species now and only three are feeders..

    I just herd them onto my hand. Honestly its a good way to get pinched or stung though :) Beware the reverse sting, some of them are quite proficient at it. I call it the spear. And yes, they eat dubia, and lats, superworms, all the spider food. ;)

    I'd sure like a species account section on roaches. Their care, breeding, suitability as pets and/or feeders. Would encourage that hobby, introduce more species and successful care of them.

    Okay, I'll admit it...I can't find the scorpion forum, and like a typical guy, I've been reluctant to ask. hahaha. Where the heck is it? :)
