    Hello fellow Arachnoboards members!:)
    Figured I'd start my own picture thread so I don't have to be constantly sharing links to my blog and stuff. LOL
    I'll start off this thread with a couple pics of each arthropod species I own.:)

    That's it for my roaches right now, but keep watch for pics of my 25+ other species of arthropods!
  16. Scratch that, just had a stunning new adult A.tesselata pop up in my enclosure!

    I spoke to one of the blattodea experts and unfortunately he's seen it before and suspects it's not genetic, therefore the trait can't be isolated. :( It seems color morphs like this can occur when specimens are kept at cooler temps.

    I started out with two of these, but sadly one larva died, leaving me with one. My remaining larva has developed a couple black spots on its body, but it seems to have constructed a pupal chamber now so I'm hoping it pupates fine despite its less than perfect condition.
