Did you realize that as a reptile owner, you don’t just become the owner of one new and fascinating pet but that you can often become the owner of hundreds of other pets that go along with your pet reptile? “Oh oh what’s she talking about now” you’re probably asking. LOL well, what I mean is, that a number of reptiles need to eat bugs, so when I had my Chinese Water Dragons I had to keep crickets, mealworms and earthworms for them to eat. There were times when I had 1000 Zoophoba (king mealworms), 500 crickets chirping away in special bug keeping containers in my home, as well as a couple of containers of earthworms in my fridge.
When you have to keep those kinds of creatures in your home for your pet you start to become fascinated with their life cycles too, and if you’re like me you start learning about the creepy crawlies. Believe me I’ve written pages and pages of information about bugs on two of my other websites. So when I saw that CoolBugStuff.com was offering an opportunity to write a post about them I jumped on the idea.
CoolBugStuff.com is a website that educates people about bugs. The site is written in a way that a child can understand easily. There’s tons of free information on hundreds if not thousands of bugs, as well as educational resources, and cool bug related educational products. I can easily see teachers visiting this site to find information and or projects to use with their kids in class. Isn’t there always some kind of bug related project in school?
The company sells bug related toys, clothes, books, games, science and bug related kits, and even uhm … edible bugs for the home and classroom. Interesting. Also, if you happen to be in South Florida CoolBugStuff.com does creepy crawly bug Adventure shows for Kindergarten to Grade five classes.
I think this is a great site. One I would have gladly written about here or on my reptile related sites because I find bugs interesting. Oh, I guess I could have written about it on my gardening site too. Bugs are very important to gardeners – some are bad and eat your plants, and others eat the bugs that eat your plants. I’m sure CoolBugStuff.com has that kind of information on their site too – so if you can’t get into bugs simply because they are fascinating creatures, perhaps if you are a gardener, you might find some of the information there useful for your gardening needs. Big hint- look up lady Bugs while you are there.
