I’m thinking vinegaroons but I want to know other people’s opinions as well
I have an old 40 gallon I used for my hamster so it’s ok if it requires a lot of space.
Hi all, if you are taking Zool 250 ( Survey of the Invertebrates) through Heather Proctor, can I drop the in-person lab (do all labs online) at all during winter 2021. Also if you are taking this class and wanna make new friends message me pls. Thanks and advance Happy New Year!
Edit: I left my phone open and this accidentally got posted too soon. Funny that I already got comments anyway! Lol
Hello! I am researching ball python husbandry and planning on getting one next spring. I also am very interested in invertebrates, although not enough to start researching much yet, because I would rather only have to upkeep one enclosure. I am planning on setting up a fully bioactive planted enclosure complete with UV light for plants and plenty of hiding places. I’m actually going to be doing that at least a month or two before purchasing a snake, so the plants and cleanup crew have time to become established.
Of course I am already planning on getting isopods. But I was curious if any larger invertebrates can be housed with ball pythons? Snails, beetles, millipedes?
I recently purchased a second-hand Nikon trinoculor microscope and as part of the tests I had a look at the little midge in Burmese amber I bought a while back. It passes all the UV and hot needle tests. The midge is tiny and not shown here, what is shown is what I found when I went looking. It's quite clearly an insect, my guess is something like a nympth of a damselfly and a spider, the abdomen of which is clearly visible. I haven't been able to get a decent shot of the other side which is why there are two versions from the same angle.
Can anyone point me in the right direction of which species these are? Also, if the spider is actually biting the nymph, does that make it quite rare?
Many thanks for your help.
