Hisserdude Posted February 3, 2018 Share Posted February 3, 2018 So, right before Christmas, my mom bought a few Simandoa conserfariam nymphs as a gift for me from @Peter Clausen from BugsInCyberspace. She decided to use Priority mail instead of express however, despite the rather cold weather, and even with a heat pack, all 8 of the roaches Peter sent arrived very dead looking, presumably because of the extended trip through the cold. :/ I didn't throw them out right away though, as I had a faint hope that after warming up a bit, they may revive themselves. Well, a couple days passed, and some of them had started twitching erratically, they didn't really have full control of their motions, but it was something. Fast forward about a week, and all but three of the roaches died off completely. The three that remained slowly regained their complete bodily functions, and started eating and drinking again. All three have successfully molted in my care now, so I think they are in the clear! A surprising but very pleasant end to the situation! I've got one half grown nymph, which is a male, and two small nymphs I can't sex yet. Anyway, here are some pictures of them, (mostly of the large male really, since he's the easiest to photograph): They are so pretty, especially with that slight iridescent sheen! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
