To transform the apartment into a Museum hall full of strange insects, managed Vladimir Efremenko from the Krasnoyarsk territory. A quarter of a century he collected rare beetles and butterflies from around the world. For the sake of his passion entomologist had at times to sacrifice even health and freedom. However, for many of his colleagues, this price does not seem excessive.

To transform the apartment into a Museum hall full of strange insects, managed Vladimir Efremenko from the Krasnoyarsk territory. A quarter of a century he collected rare beetles and butterflies from around the world. For the sake of his passion entomologist had at times to sacrifice even health and freedom. However, for many of his colleagues, this price does not seem excessive.

Grasshoppers, beetles and butterflies. A lot of butterflies. From securacom of the world: Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Africa and America. His collection Vladimir Efremenko collects for 25 years. His apartment is like a Museum of entomology. Cabinets, tables – everything here is literally filled up with insects. Hunting them for Vladimir – the disease. From which there is no cure.

“And you have no idea how pleasant it is, the disease. I don’t want to eat or drink. I days fishing. In Madagascar, in Africa I was 17. Traveled all over Southeast Asia, South and Central America. And I catch, I catch, I catch,” says the collector of insects Vladimir Efremenko.

To the question “why are you doing this?” very concise reply: don’t ask. Still do not understand. The usual hobby is to collect unusual collection. In the jungle the insects for Efremenko – not only potential exhibits for the collection. But the food. Argues that tasty. At home he spends a lot less time than in trips. Now preparing for another – this time in a nature reserve in the North of Siberia. It involves a dream that couldn’t be done.

“I Want to catch one bug. I have been there 4 times already, This is a rare bug, I never got caught. I caught the wine, and Apple cider vinegar. And on anything. But he won’t come, you know!” said collector of insects Vladimir Efremenko.

Traveling is not complete, as Vladimir himself expressed, with no small trouble. Two years ago he was detained on Madagascar customs. On suspicion of smuggling rare butterflies. Guilt could not be proven, and collector, was eventually released. However, while there was an investigation – I had to spend in prison for three months.

Main love Paul Sadritdinova – Scorpions and spiders. Them in his collection – a few dozen. Buys mostly abroad and on the Internet. On special sites for lovers of insects. Live Pets Paul in the room. The parents of the young man, apparently, had no choice. I had to accept the unusual hobby of the son.

“The fact that I didn’t ask my parents. Borrowed money from my uncle and bought the first batch of spiders in number of 35 pieces. And after I waited, they came, I led parents and said – here’s my new hobby,” tells a collector of insects Pavel Sadretdinov.

Poison pet spiders and Scorpions Paul is not hazardous for people. But they can bite. Therefore, the wildlife collector keeps his in plastic containers. Spiders at will not let go because can easily escape. But the worst thing – especially for neighbours, when Paul run marble cockroaches

“Cockroaches marble run and well, by the way, accustomed in the apartments. Them a long time to display, if they ran away,” says collector Paul Sadretdinov.

And in Novosibirsk now anyone can participate in the race Madagascan cockroaches. Each “rider” before the start is given the wand. She needs to “stimulate” runners, drumming transparent fences treadmills.

Madagascar cockroaches can reach speeds of about 4 miles an hour. The participants of the championship races their race often still pass, but not ran.

Before the tournament Madagascan cockroaches are kept on a strict diet. And then – fed. Mainly fruit. However, exhausted after numerous starts the race participants to the incentives remain largely indifferent.
