Hisser health question


Recommended Posts

I have a question about something I noticed about my hissers (G. portentosa). I got these about a year and a half ago as pets for my daughter and they are doing really well. However, I just noticed they (mostly all) seem to have white growths (?) on their legs (tarsus). I can't get a picture of mine but found a photo on the internet showing exactly what mine look like. I'm assuming this is ok and the way they are supposed to look since I can't find anything in a search for it but would like to know for sure. I know sometimes they have mites but can't find any on mine, if that helps.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Those are tarsal pads, totally normal part of insect anatomy.
