Well, it only happened with my crickets. Two times i get new colonies and both times all gone. Suddenly i started to loose interest breeding crickets.
With herps once time i felt that way (then i had 50 herps) the time was not always on my side (plus that i keep and care for mealworms, crickets 3 spp, mice, rats).
So, i sell of some of my collection but i kept those first or/and "big loves"
I cannot imagine myself without herps and music.
They say i'm not hooked with drugs but i think they're lyin!
I'm surely hooked on herps and music!
