charzard Posted February 24, 2017 Share Posted February 24, 2017 Today my G. portentosa nymphs arrived from Kyle of Roach Crossing! I have ten of them and they are so adorable...I am in love! I was curious, though, about the coloring of them and if it is due to how many molts they may have gone through thus far. I have two that are all dark brown on the top of them, such as the first photo, and they are the biggest of the bunch. Then there are two of them that are dark brown on top, but seem to have a lighter coloring on the edges. The other six are tiny and about the size of an eraser tip. So, my question is whether the coloring is due to how many molts they've gone through or sex related? Also, do they shed their antennae when molting as well? I noticed one of the smaller ones with part of the antennae missing and I assume it will grow back next molt? Thank you! -Charlie 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
