Congratulation!!!:D Hope these guys end up being copious for you!

Thanks, my P.aegyptiaca lay a ton of oothecae, hoping these guys will be equally prolific!

How close are your other nymphs to maturing?

Pretty close, most of them seem to be subadults but one may be a pre-sub. :)

I think mine are finally starting to mature, so hopefully I'll get a few ooths soon as well. Fantastic species to keep! :)

@Hisserdude: Did your adults became restless in the period before producing an ootheca? My adults females seem to 'wait' above ground for a male to arrive... 
Btw great pictures!

No, mine stay underground almost all the time, before and after making an oothecae. They only ever seem to come up to feed.

Thanks! :D

Nice one! Quite a wait!

Thanks! Yeah, these guys take forever to mature, and the ooths also take a long time to develop, definitely worth it though! :)
