Megaloblatta longipenis — Breeding Project

Recommended Posts

To paraphrase Jurassic Park, you did it. You crazy son of a bitch actually did it.

My day has been pretty crappy since one of my rhinos died, but at least this is some fantastic news. I hope these make it to the states someday.

Any updates with this @Xenoblatta? Or does anyone know what happened with the project?

Thanks,

I've asked him in PMs, and sadly, I believe his nymphs died only weeks after hatching, perhaps due to their oothecae being surgically opened up for them rather than it hatching in a more natural manner, the nymphs could have been just a little too underdeveloped or something...

That's too bad. These large species are certainly being a pain to get established in captivity.

Yeah, Ectobiids in general are usually a pain to get well established in the hobby, especially the Nyctiborinae, since we don't know how the heck to hatch their oothecae yet...
