Herpetologyfrk Posted June 3, 2011 Share Posted June 3, 2011 I know that Eublaberus posticus is infamous for wing biting, I am not sure about the whole genus though. Anyways the first one of mine to mature a month ago I noticed that one of his legs molted out funky and he was slower then the rest. I didn't think much of it at the time to be honest. I took a closer look at the colony today and I noticed all my adults had no bites in their wings, until I came across this particular male. All the other adults didn't even have a nibble out of their wings. I felt bad for the male and put him in his own home. My guess is that all the males started getting defensive and a little possessive over the maturing females that this little guy got beat up because he was much slower then the rest of them (I had 5 males mature before any females). Just wanted to share this observation with you all Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
