Now I’m ready to brainstorm weird ways that it could actually kill you....You could always trip over an enclosure and break your neck. T escapes and crawls in your mouth in the middle of night. You choke to death.
Man whats up with all the final destination deaths? The choking is the best :rofl:

Drops cricket
Bends over to pick it up
Bumps shelf
Enclosure lands on head


...cricket crawls in mouth and he chokes to death

:rofl:
