  1. And the correct answer is...............Danaus plexippus (the Monarch Butterfly)!
  2. That's awesome! Best of luck with establishing your culture!
  3. It is! Although in this particular case, I'm suspicious that the behavioral differences are due to sex. Fairly certain that the angry one is a female based on how much larger it is than the others. ๐Ÿ˜…
  4. Merry early Christmas, guys! Did anyone else get one of these under their tree, or was it just me?? ๐Ÿ˜œ
  5. Nice! I have four myself. 3 out of the 4 are rather skittish, but the largest has a hot temper like yours. ๐Ÿ˜‚
  6. Smeringurus mesaensis (the Dune Scorpion) is a sizeable arachnid that ranges throughout the Southwestern United States and Mexico. They get their common name from the habitats in which they call home - open deserts/dunes. Individuals spend the scorching daytime hours hunkered down in burrows and only emerge to go about life once darkness has fallen. Females generally outgrow males and measure up to approximately 3 inches in length at adulthood, making them one of North America's largest scorpions! If threatened, these animals will raise the tail end of their bodies high into the air, sending a
  7. For me, it was my adult Blaberus giganteus stridulating and individuals of a couple species seeming to scratch their backs on objects as if they were itchy.
  8. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This year, I'd like to to extend a special thanks to House Centipedes. Enjoy and have a swell holiday. ๐Ÿ˜„
  9. Happy Hallows' Eve, roachers! I present to you: An All About Arthropods Halloween 2020 Enjoy and stay buggy! ๐Ÿ˜œ
  10. For nearly all intents and purposes, the "Red Skirt" and "Red Edge" isopods are both referring to the same Cubaris species. I have not seen the Porcellio scaber "Red Skirt" circulated around really at all in the hobby yet, so 99% of what you see under that name should be Cubaris. Always best to ask for pics/species confirmation either way if you're trying to acquire some though.
  11. I'm unsure what exact external features differentiate the two, but could be! Sure thing. ๐Ÿ‘
  12. Just remembered that P.floria also should occur over there as well, but whatever you have, the orange uropods are still unusual. Good luck on isolating the genetics!
  13. I'm not aware of any other Porcellionides species in that area, so you definitely should have a morph on your hands!
  14. Don't test me. ๐Ÿคช
  15. This I can not deny. Oof. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  16. Welcome back! Hopefully you get nice and settled in here soon and return to breeding a few roach species again. ๐Ÿ™‚
