    Getting more baby dictators, another small male and big female. So far, I know I've had two males and they both have been small, I wonder if it's typical or not, not enough specimens to confirm it. I do have a small female also, so it may be a trend with exceptions, may find out later. I think the diff color is from a recent molt but I'm not sure about that yet.

    I found them in a pet store quite a while back. From what I was told and read, there was an illegal shipment of them to the US and Europe. You can probably still find the article on the internet. Then, I guess they didn't know what to do with them so they just went to several pet stores and online pet dealers. They were labeled dictator in the store and I knew what they were since I had read about them so thought it best to grab some because that will probably never happen again.

    The one to the left looks exactly like my 3 that were labeled as dictator. I got 2 males and 1 female, but 1 male has a missing pectine.

    The one on the right hadn't darkened up all the way after it's last molt. It's the only visible diff other than size. The camera can make them appear green, they are black like imperator, I can't see any difference in color over here.
