    See I have never been hugely interested in T's or Scorps as far as keeping, but know them well enough and could easily find care requirements. I am more interested in millipedes, predatory beetles, scarabs, phasmids, roaches of various types, cave crickets, lubbers( maybe), I would eventually like to looking into getting some pill millipedes several years down the road if possible (though they will be hard to get shipped to me) only because I am pretty sure I have a way to raise giant species in captivity because people haven't tried it yet, stag beetles of course, mantids... god knows what else XD

    All of those sound very interesting too. Especially the predatory beetles. Have you ever watched "The Spiderman" on YouTube? I'm subscribed to him because he has such a diverse invertebrate collection. He has some really cool assassin bugs and mantids.
    Arachnids caught my eye partially because of the negative stereotypes surrounding them. That, new things to learn, and their predatory nature.

    Carabids (predatory beetles that I am most interested in) can be found locally almost everywhere, they are the umbrella family and then smaller species branch off from it. I have not watched him. I don't watch a lot of things on youtube, except unless I need some help deciding a basic set up and then tweak it to how it fits me best. I would never keep assassin bugs for sure, most species easily become dangerous pests. If you can keep them out in the garden that's great, but with all my insect colonies I have enough issues with them and they will feed on pets and humans as well.

    You definitely know entomology better than I do. For someone like me, who is still very new to it, watching the various inverts on YouTube and reading about them is educational. I admit, arachnids and insects have always been interesting but I never considered keeping anything beyond Mantids, Scorpions, or Tarantulas. In fact, if it were not for my Leopard geckos, I wouldn't have ever considered keeping roaches of any kind. Now I have a thriving colony of dubia.
    I didn't know how easily Assassin bugs could become pests. I mean, obviously, they are not something I'd want loose in my home. Thanks for giving me more to read up on
