Exclusively For Batspiderfish :D

Hey sir,

A big fan here. :D You never fail to impress me with your immense knowledge about ants and especially when it comes to Identifying an ant specie which is by far the most challenging area of this hobby in my opinion. Would like to know what else do you keep besides ants? Like I was curious to know if you also have spiders and fish as pets as well or you just randomly made up that name. :D No Offence

I completely agree with aqdashassaan, your knowledge in this hobby is impressive and I too would like to learn how you identify ants with such accuracy. it would help hone my skills as an ant keeper :D
Let us remember that even though ants are wonderful creatures, even more magnificent is their creator 😌

Batspiderfish is impressive, and mainly how I learned to ID ants with decent accuracy is just experience, and seeing other people ID ants, and just building up your mental encyclopedia on ants, and all their features.

Aww! Thanks! I am an amateur photographer, biologist, and seasoned hobbyist of six years who loves to keep the most unusual native species in my area. This has required me to learn the nuances of identification and ant taxonomy and to keep up-to-date with what hobbyists all over my country are finding. I am not incredibly skillful at identifying ants from outside of my region, but I can at least narrow down to the genus. I've found that the complexity, diversity, and beauty of local ants is something you have to learn about in order to be able to see.

Batspiderfish is a ridiculous amalgamation with the body of a fish, the legs of a spider, and the wings of a bat. It was originally a gamertag.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

I still play on PC every once in a while: Age of Empires II, Overwatch, and Civilization V are probably my favorite for multiplayer, and at least once a year I will go on a Minecraft kick. I have a pretty thick Steam library.
