Rich has a long-time interest
in all scarab beetles. He has amassed a considerable collection
that consists of 241 pinned specimens and 172 pounds
of uncurated, frozen specimens spanning four freezers located
in his dirt-floored basement bugroom, which consists of
walls made from plastic sheets nailed from
overhead floor joists.
Rich teaches high-school biology and coaches the wrestling team.
