Hissing Cockroach

“Ten for $10″, read the sign at the East Bay Vivarium.  So I bought 10 roaches.  The guy tried to charge me $20.  I pointed at the sign, “Roaches ten for $10″ with a smile on my face.  He then went through the involved process of voiding out the previous sale.  I wish I would have kept my mouth shut.  The staff at the vivarium is odd, hostile with a sense of humor; elitist reptile lovers.

I finally finished “Killing the Fat Man Episode 11″ tonight and rewarded myself with a roach photo shoot!

This was shot in a photo tent, using 3 flashes.
