I love it when you decide to randomly pop back up from The dead just to stir the pot once more!
LOL

Im not trying to stir the pot, or insult him at all. I am just saying, this post seems a little dramatic. I am sad to see him go, and sad he gave up his cham, and feel that he is being a little dramatic.

My 7yo daughter had a cricket crawl on her the other day, and she freaked, and I told her just like I just said in this post. Its not going to hurt her, its creepy, creeps me out too at least it wasnt a recluse or a widow though. No matter how refined of a city you try and reside in, Nature is still a thing, its still there and your still going to have to deal with it. Human beings trying to shun nature, and be grossed out, and kill it for their own of comfort is wrong way to approach it.

I seen alot of you guys saying his was selfish for having bugs in the house when it bothered his family, but I disagree. His family should understand that whether he keeps them or not, THERE is and ALWAYS will be Bugs in their house. To blame the Forum for there being "Bugs in his House" is just silly. Whether its the roach that escaped or a spider just trying to live, acting like the world is ending over it is the wrong way to handle it, and the wrong mentality to teach children.

As he said, "Its selfish to have someone else move in and see some unidentified roach" as compared to what? The thousands of other unidentified creatures that will get in during there stay, both seen and unseen. It may be your house, but the land belongs to planet earth, your borrowing that land, your borrowing your life, at the end you will give it back to this planet.

Yeah, got lucky, caught a preggo green flying mantis, she layed an oothica and then I fed her to my cham, she was gonna die anyways, they cruise around my cham room and eat the escaped crickets, dubias and fruit flys, there are also a number of other insects I noticed some lacewings as well as isopods, I'm hoping to keep the mantids going, chams love them!!
