    One of them got greedy and tried to steal the whole piece.

    Some old pics of hissers I used to have. I only had males...sometimes they were fighting, sometimes they tried to mate with each other :D

    Beautiful!! I'd like to know what kind of roach is in the 12th picture (their in a bowl)? I've never seen those and can't believe how big they are!

    Love the snails!
    The isopods are my favourite though.
    Hoping to get some Armadillidium maculatum myself soon.

    Your giant land snails are absolutely breathtaking. I have to say I've never seen them that large, I see something new every day on AB. I love them! Truly awesome.

    Some native isopods that live in my A. tesselata tank, don't know the species. (And some T. tomentosa.)

    Pomatias elegans eating zucchini. These little guys mostly eat decaying leaves.

    Looks like Philoscia muscorum, a common European species. :)

    When I lived in Hawaii, there was a feral population of An Achatina species there...one of them was so big, I thought it was a shoe until I got closer to it...

    That's a nice yellow P. muscorum. I found a similar one last year that produced some yellow babies, but they all darkened as they grew. I'm hoping some more yellows might appear in the next generation.

    My last hisser (Winston) has been living with my A. tesselata for a while now.
