I breed Captive Bred Peripatus (Velvet worms).
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.
