Welcome to my blog on breeding and studying invertebrates. I hope to share here a number of hints, tips and experiences that I remember or discover as I go along. It seems only fair to start with a list of invertebrates that I am currently keeping, so here goes:

Stick Insects
Pseudosermyle phalangiphore
Parapachymorpha zomproi
Clonaria conformans
Abrosoma johorensis
Carausius morosus
Ocnophiloidea regularis
Lamponius guerini
Brassidas samarensis
Trachyaretaon brueckneri
Carausius sanguinoligatus

Achatina iredalei
Caracolus marginella
Achatina fulica
Achatina immaculata
Asolene spixi
Rumina decollata
Cochlicella acuta
Cochlicella barbara
Cernuella sp.

Apheloria tigana
Chicobolus sp.

Therea petiveriana

Folsomia candida

I have previously kept and bred many other species, and I will publish some information from my notebooks as and when I feel it is appropriate.
