Visnake, Contributor
Biography:

I was naming basic insect anatomy when I was a toddler, catching and documenting insects by 4th grade, memorizing orders by 6th grade, and reading insect textbooks by 7th grade. I may not be a professional, but I'm not half bad. I am recording all of the insects I find and hope that someday I will be able to put them all together and make a field guide. I have over one hundred identified insects (of all kinds) complete with a picture (that I took myself) and measurements. All of the pictures I post are unique because they are my own. I hope that I can add new data points to this site and assist all of you with identification!
