Page for additional stuff. I might post news, signature art (once I have some) and other things regarding this thread here.

Art wanted!
If you'd like to help this thread by drawing a banner or little signature image things, I'd greatly appreciate this. I have no skill in digital art myself, so any help would be grand.

Donations?
I would like to do some raffle related to this thread in the future. I'd like donations of gems and various invertebrate related stuff (that aren't food items or common familiars, as those will be used for raffle points). So, if you have spare gems or invertebrate related genes, apparel, skins or similar, a donation would be nice. All of these things will be safely vaulted and only be used for these raffles. Of course, I'll try to contribute as much as possible too.

Here's the start of this wonderful thread. It almost wasn't made today, as I found nothing outside today and it was getting too windy too continue. But then, inside, I came across humanity's most humble companion: the cellar spider. [img]https://i.imgur.com/6ULDt4V.jpg[/img] These little spiders actually adapted to live with humans. Sicne the beginning of our species, we've been sharing our caves with them. We kept predators away from them with our presence, and they in turn ate insects that might harm us - including the world's deadliest animal, the mosquito. Even as or caves became fancier, they stayed with us. Wonerful critters, even though many people wouldn't think much about them.

Haven't found any critter today. It's still kinda cold and for health reasons I don't want to stay outside that long today. There's oddly few flowers currently. Snowdrops should be starting to bloom at the moment, but I can't see any around. Here's a little something though. I found outside, in a tiny corner near the house what looks like a spider web that still looks usable enough. Someone lives there. [img]https://i.imgur.com/LXwb2AH.jpg[/img] Edit: damn, that pic looks bad. That's what I get trying to photograph a small silk construct in a dark corner with a phone.

@Xianahri Put me on the pinglist please! Here are some pictures of my African long tailed centipede [i](Rhysida longipes)[/i], which I named Centipeetle. I only have pictures of him in the shipping vial because he blends in with the substrate in his enclosure.

I’ve always mostly been into invertebrates, but centipedes are especially cool to me.

As Voro said too, those pics don't work. I suggest uploading them to https://imgur.com/ It's easy to use and requires no signup.

Myriapodes are great. Don't have to many of those around here. Soem species of centipedes and millipedes are supposed to be found in central europe, yet I've never seen one in the wild.

Good luck taking pictures of wild ones. Judging from the distribution of those two species you mentioned, I guess you're somewhere from either southern US or northern Mexico. Sounds like it's a lot warmer there than here, so you likely have a better chance of finding critters than I do at the moment.

And now, I really wanna see centipeetle. He sounds nice.
