Edward Posted June 15, 2012 Share Posted June 15, 2012 For the last week or so I've noticed that a certain oblongonota female (Almost 3 inches)had started swelling up, her abdominal segments telescoping so that it was easy to see bits of white. Since I've only had them for about a month and a half, ordering them as large nymphs,(and I haven't seen any molts among the 2"+ roaches i ordered), I assumed that she was about to molt. When i woke up this morning at 6, to my surprise, dozens of slightly whitish/grey/brown nymphs were crawling all over inside the enclosure. My first litter obviously the "premolt" female was mature and gravid, and now I'm starting to suspect the rest of my oblongonota are mature, although none of them are evidently 3"+. I've always thought that mature oblongonota were from 3"-4". Could i have runts? Or is there something else at play? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
