Aww... for a wing-biting cannibal, he's (or she) pretty cute. How big is it?

Do they get their orange coloring after their exoskeleton has dried a bit?

Yes. Pale when freshly molted (1st day or so) and color up within a few days. Males are notoriously the first to appear if the nymphs are the same approximate age.
