"...When you can get into a heated argument about hybridization with a passing stranger..."

"...When you make jokes like, 'What am I, chopped sucking stomach?', and make up insults that only make sense to you because they are scientific names..."

"...When you catch yourself saying Brachypelma albopilosum and promptly reprimand yourself by repeating Tlitocatl albopilosus over and over out loud..."

Thanks,

...when you find two of your male G. grandidieri brawling in their tub and you just sit and watch in fascination (and try not to pick sides)

I'll raise you an Archiblatta!

...When your friends say they're afraid that when they go outside you'll jump out from a bush talking about USDA\APHIS regulations
...When your brother buys you a millipede shirt
...When you have to purchase a second humidifier because your invert collection has expanded to two rooms and you have to make the third floor of your house tropical
...When you voluntarily take in 400 hissers to help your boss

I don’t have a brother but if I did this is the kind of brother I would want 😂

When an arachnophobic colleague/family member sends you to get rid of a spider, then says "is it gone?", and you lie and say "YES".

When your family sees a Pest species of Cockroach running on the floor and you say, “Don’t kill it.”

When you start trying to take pictures of fungus gnats for an upcoming blog post about typical invertebrate enclosure pests...

You know you’re really into inverts when..... you vividly dream about having to physically correct someone’s Ephobopus cyanognathus enclosure that was set up like an arboreal

.....and you really really know you are when you are speaking the Latin nomenclature as well as family and sub family names to the keeper in the dream.

Fossorial Latin Dreaming 😴 💭
