Arthro-Pod Episode 44 Arthropods as Pets with Sarah Triplett

Howdy, howdy bug lovers! When we talk about insects and other arthropods, many of our conversations are about their status as pests. On today's Arthro-Pod though, we are talking about them as PETS!

From cockroaches and beetles, to spiders and scorpions there are lots of different kinds of arthropod animals you can have as a pet. With our guest, Sarah Triplett of the Butterfly Pavilion, we talk about which ones are easiest, which ones to avoid, and tips/tricks for helping your pet live a long and happy life with you! Tune in!
