  1. That male is so light I've never seen one like it. With enough selective breeding I'm sure it's going to pop up here soon!
  2. Prolapse and perhaps debris stuck to it, poop possibly? It looks blue from the lighting it's really brown.
  3. Great photos! I've got to get my macro going for some photos.
  4. They both are awesome, congrats on the progress!
  5. Thank you! I will be sure to get a photo of the underside once he/she gets settled in
  6. Today, the babies (now adults) in this thread turned 2!
  7. I did that, took group photos of each molt to compare changes. Amazing how different they look each molt, especially coloring!
  8. I had two that got some of that red color on pronum but not fully red like the ones above.
  9. Great article, and yes NY has taken forever for spring and it's still behind but getting there! I remember camping upstate NY and finding spotted salamander larva in a drying vernal pool and saving them by bringing them home. Got a few adults but sadly they only lived a few years I was young and didn't know proper husbandry yet.
  10. If wings don't expand fully it usually is low humidity causing it or they fall after molting and it affects the wings.
  11. I've had Giganteus mate with craniifer but no offspring resulted.
  12. The singer Avril lavigne has been sick with this for months I heard, creeps me out I went walking with thousands of tick nymphs in grass even though I had repellent and my socks and pants tucked in and light clothing. I hope you both feel better soon!
  13. I thought you were serious. I actually had an adult male that matured earlier in life at only half the size of normal males, not penny sized though lol. he had light wings and dark body but didn't live too long and he never tried mating. He was in a post a year ago I'll have to see if I can find it.
  14. Seriously, I thought it was a photo of a living creature and I've seen beetles that look like trilobites so I thought it was that. My bad!
  15. Exactly, your keeping track and no cross contamination you can do what you please with your personal collection.
  16. Looks like some beetle http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d9/Trilobite_tracks_at_World_Museum_Liverpool_d1.jpg/800px-Trilobite_tracks_at_World_Museum_Liverpool_d1.jpg

  18. Found this article showing a wild deaths head roach http://www.backyardnature.net/yucatan/deadhead.htm
  19. I want to use cork bark for my aquatic newt tank, but I heard it leeches brown coloring into the water. Will this color eventually fade but the cork bark remain solid and not rot?
  20. You should then you can keep us posted here with your results, and cockroach books can be updated with your photos.
