This is periplaneta Americana, the American cockroach , just a small culture as they are not the most popular pet, but we often use them for filming when a cockroach is required as they are a pest the world over. Probably the fastest cockroach in the world and they can climb up anything.... no wonder no one loves them !!! #insectsofinstagram #insects #followers #insects_of_our_world #bugzuk #invertebrates #bugs #bugzuk.com #followers #cockroach

📷made by  @rich_c_diver -  This is a pelagic (free swimming) nudibranch. (Phylliroe sp.) Nudibranchs are generally bottom dwelling, shell-less sea slugs of the phylum Mollusca, and often display fabulous colors and patterns. This species is very different in that it is semi transparent, swims like a fish and feeds on jellyfish in open water. See slide 2 for detailed side profile.

Cycloneda sanguinea.
If you watch closely this ladybug is surrounded by a lot of small green insects, those are called aphids and they're the favourite food of ladybugs and their larvae. 🐞🐛💚
The campus is full of 3 different species of ladybugs (C. sanguinea, H. axyridis and H. convergens) but today a friend found another species that I've never seen before there (Olla v-nigrum).

Before and after molting |
Lasiodora parahybana (Salmon Pink Bird-Eater) |
It's starting to get too big for it's favorite resting spot 😔

Hey guys! This is the only ‘selfie’ I’ll probably ever post unless it’s with a creature of some kind, hah, but I wanted to introduce myself!! My name is Gracie Koebel, and my husband (Cody) decided he wanted a spider. My initial reaction?? “not just no, but HELL no!!” I’m pregnant (with a little boy), we don’t need to spend the money on them, they’re creepy, etc. then I started to research them, and understand them better, and absolutely fell in LOVE!! To the point where I am actually going to adopt some myself!!!! We are from Kentucky, and decided to come down to New Orleans, which we have done every year for the last 3 years! We just so happened to come on the weekend that the #herpsreptileshow will be happening, and it just so happened we would be in town for it- coincidence??????? I think not. Keep an eye out today for live video feed, pictures and videos of all of the creepy crawlies, and posts about my new spider children!!!!!🕷👶🏻❤️ (it will primarily be me posting, also, just so you all know haha!) ~Gracie

Introducing the newest member of the Gilvear-Rzeznik clan: Flik! 🍃 
Flik is a giant rainforest mantis, one of the largest praying mantis species in Australia and he’ll be between 10-15cm when he’s fully grown! I’m already so, so in love - he’s so inquisitive and I can’t wait to see him grow 💚

I never tire of looking at my shrimp. They delight me no end. It's like having my own meadow full of critters -- but I can look at them indoors (and in my jammies )#RedCherryShrimp

Cramp Ball Fungus Weevil - Platyrhinus resinosus

A sad day in the garden the other week, the extreme windy conditions took a final toll on our old ash tree that fell.  It has supported may species over the years but it was very old and last years period of hot weather was the final straw, this means it is unlikely we will see this beetle in the garden again as it has a close association with a fungus that grows on ash trees, still I was glad I had managed to get some shots from the year before.

Some fine examples of architecture and craftsmanship in the insect world. Putting together materials from their surroundings to make their mobile homes during their larval stages. Bagworm moths, Psychidae.

Blue. Our 1.75” Homoeomma sp. Blue... great eater and is always on display. Never hides.

Eating like a champ. I’m not sure if my other female gbb is doing good. Tried giving her a freshly molted feeder, a crushed feeder. But nothing. Saw her in a stress curl this morning, thankful it’s not a death curl. I do see her drink from time to time but that’s it. Sigh.
