    I am considering options for getting more pets (again).

    I know this forum is mostly focused towards herps, but my favorites are inverts (don't get me wrong, I love herps too). I currently have a tarantula and hisser cockroaches.

    I would prefer that it be a vegetarian.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you looked in to millipedes.

    A little. I would love to eventually get a African Giant Black. What others species make good pets?

    I have been looking into walkingsticks and would love to get a northern (Diapheromera fermorata), but I can't find anywhere selling them. :mad: I think it's the only legal one here.

    If you are in the US check out kenthebugguys stuff.

    They're carnivorous but if you ever get the opportunity to own a mantis I'd definitely recommend them.
    It's a pity they don't live long, though.

    I have never had one but I can agree mantis are really cool.

    Flower Beetles and Blue Death Feigning Beetles are pretty cool.

    I LOVE mantises :) I had a huge chinese mantis that actually just died on Christmas!

    Personally, I think the giant ones are pretty cool.

    Do you know anyone who sells them? Kenthebugguy has a pretty limited selection. I think some of the larger beetle species are illegal to import to the US so the supply is limited.

    Selection may be due to season, most bugs are not happy being shipped in winter.

    Personally, no. But, I'm sure if you look around, you'll be able to find some.
