~309 Polyphemus eggs

I’m about to have my hands very full.
Just wait until they've hatched and they're hungry :p My 2nd polyphemus emerged last night and also turned out female. Still no luck finding males though.
 
@PidderPeets Fingers crossed you get a male soon! This is from the female I posted last, I have about 20 eggs from a wild caught female that just started hatching yesterday night, I’ve got them on some variety of oak, hopefully they’ll do well on it :)
 
@Sarkhan42 Thanks! As of this morning, they've both started to lay a few infertile eggs for weight reduction, and the girl who's been out longer is very blatantly calling, so I'm hoping that they'll attract one soon. Oak is pretty high on the list of their host plants, so I'm sure yours will be just fine on that
