    The bugs alive book has helped me to understand invertabrates in a deeper depth and is great as it tells you the best insects that are compatible with each other and why, it holds lots of I formation that you just wouldn't find on the web. I definitely recomend this to anyone at all who has an invertabrate or who would like a better understanding of them.
