My first adult (B. Orientalis)


Recommended Posts

Only a couple of hours since the molt, but this is the first adult from the nymphs I've had since last autumn. Time to reach adulthood is a little more than 6 months, which is a lot less than the 12 months I thought it would take. They grow up so fast!

I hope the wings will darken; I like the sleek black look.

Congrats man, nice looking adult! :) He should darken up soon, don't worry, he'll be jet black in no time!

Yep, the wings darkened nicely:

But now it looks like adulthood permits it to climb the smooth walls of the vivarium...go figure.
