    I love them so much and it would be awesome if I could actually take care of one. I'm pretty sure that the answer will be no but I still think a ladybug would make a pretty cool pet.

    I tried doing that as a child kept it in a container with leaves and gave it a diet of aphids. It lived for around two weeks

    You could get plants and everything and somewhere safe to keep it! And obviously you'd have to give it a cool name 😎😂

    Definitely! But first, to actually find some ladybugs; the last one I saw was about a month ago. There aren't too many around here.
