Hooded Schwarzi VS Lil' Kenyans

Recommended Posts

Who is actually smaller? I own both, but all my Hooded Schwarzi are nymphs at the moment. I originally ordered Lil Kenyans to try to sub out pin head crickets as feeders. The seller mailed me the Hooded Schwarzi as a little extra to test them out for feeders as well. Any know generally which would be better? Almost all the books and info I read say Lil' Kenyans are the smallest in the hobby but so far these the Schwarzi look to be way smaller.

I think the schwarzi are smaller for sure, at least when it comes to mass. Several sources state that the Kenyans are the smallest species in culture, but those sources are outdated and were written before C.schwarzi entered the hobby. :)

I feel like the way to settle this would be to have everyone who has adults of one species or the other measure them, either in millimeters or in weight, and post the sizes.
