I asked for a moss ball at the store because I wanted one and I got java moss

When I had Tarantulas and Snakes and Lizards I had to learn all the Latin names. Most of my spiders had no common name. I had 64 at one point. That's a lot of Latin

Poecilotheria regalis was one of my favorites.
Po-ee-see-low-thair-ee-uh
ray-gal-iss

Now I'm trying to learn all my plant's names
