I have a difficult relationship with creepy crawlies. I love spiders, and I’m terrified of them. I’m fascinated by insects, but if I’m startled by one I will likely scream “GET IT OFF MEEEEEEE!” So this article about choosing the right bug as a pet evokes some conflicting emotions. I would really love to meet and hold a giant African millipede, and might even be willing to do what entomologist Sammy Ramsey is doing in that picture there. But there’s a distinct chance that the minute I touch a millipede I will NOPE right the hell out. The article is a great read, though, particularly if you either really want a bug as a pet, or have never even thought about it and wonder why anyone would want to.
