See the connection?

You don't think I'd let you get by for long without another one of Jade Walker's inverts, do you? Not only does he breed tarantulas, but he has also applied his bug-husbandry skills to lobster roaches.

Unlike the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, these insects aren't meant to be pets. These are bred for food. Tarantulas in particular enjoy them. See the connection now? Are you hungry now?

Thanks for the photo, Jade.

anonymous- Happy to be of service! ;)

For those curious, they're swarming a rather large banana. It was gone in under ten minutes; peel and all.

Jade, are you in the process of stocking your own Temple of Doom? It would explain ever so much.
