What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I breed Captive Bred Peripatus (Velvet worms).
Bugman,
I have to say, your website has provided me with much insight about unknown bugs I encounter wherever I go. As a gift, I will show you my peripatus thriving in my enclosed enviroment. I have them in a Emerson wine cooler at temps between 50~62 degrees constantly with "bed-a-beast" substrate and old rotten wood a generous man shipped me from washington. I have 3 adults, and 9 babies which are voracious eaters. I hope you enjoy my photos. I wouldnt mind a bit if you post these on your website… just as long as you let me know when you posted them and a link so I can see whateveryone is having a blast seeing 🙂 thank you again for your informative website.

    I love velvet worms….they have complex brains for invertebrates, and some species have complex behavior including recognition of family members and parental care. One day I hope to get to hold one. Their tiny little claws and shiny eyes make them very adorable. But they have scary mouths underneath all that cuteness… which makes them even cooler, they are vicious little predators in their tiny world.
