Here are some pictures of my new B.atropos "Florida", this is my first time keeping this genus, and I love them! :D

An individual with a more circular pronotum marking:

Thank you! :) I agree, they are a fun species, I really like burrowing species for some reason. I put mine in a small plastic container on my windowsill when I photographed them. After scurrying around for a bit, they seem to realize there is no escape and calm down, usually staying still long enough to get some decent pictures. The windowsill is cool this time of year, so the cold temperatures might make them slow down as well.
