Keith Posted February 20, 2012 Share Posted February 20, 2012 My Dubia nymphs are pretty large I think they are subadults they are close to same size as adult dubia. In my tank I have 1 adult female and 2 adult males. My only female got pregnant by a 2 year old male, yes males can live more than a year and still breed! I was online looking how to sex them, and noticed that sub adult males will have long wing pads and females dont, all of my nymphs look female no long wing pads and they are all wide bodied not elongated. I have about 25 or so nymphs and until they mature I guess I cant be 100% sure they all are female, but if they are is this a freak occurrance? I thought males were more common in litters? Being I only had 1 female, do you think she actually was able to determine the gender of all her babies and made them female being the "population" only had her for a female? This would be incredible if they all are female. As they turn to adults i'll try to tally the sex ratio. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
