There are many fascinating insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and other invertebrates that can be shared with the public and in classrooms. Author Orin McMonigle details the husbandry and display of numerous hardy, attractive, and interesting species from different groups, which can be used to attract greater appreciation for the wonders of the invertebrate world. The practical information provided will give an excellent start to any museum, zoo, or classroom that is considering an invertebrate display. Even hobbyists can enjoy setting up their own private Insect Zoo? From butterflies and beetles to scorpions and slugs, there are plenty of spineless wonders that are just as interesting in beauty, shape, and behavior as the larger popular megafauna more commonly on display.

This book offered a chance to write about all sorts of commonly displayed or maintained invertebrates that might never otherwise see the pages of a book. Of course there are beetles, millipedes, cockroaches, praying mantids, tarantulas, centipedes, and scorpions, but also tadpole shrimp, isopods, whipspiders, whipscorpions, katydids & lubbers, colored micro shrimp, and blue crayfish.
The paperback is more expensive than the hardcover because the paperback uses a more consistent, higher quality color process and thicker paper.
"...But try to find one that cuts across the entire breadth and depth of the displayable invertebrate world. I dare you. This book is that definitive up-to-date resource." -- Zoological Association of America Newsletter and Journal Vol.7 Issue 4
