    Most of the hemolymph was absorbed by the paper towel that I set her on, but you can see some of it on the right side along with the potential injury.

    At first I could not see any obvious injuries, but as I started to gently extract her from the hole, I saw a substantial amount of hemolymph near the pedicel. (Most of this was absorbed by the paper towel that I set her on.)

    Last night, I lost my mature female Ceratogyrus marshalli. At first when I saw her abdomen sticking out of her hole, I thought she was just being goofy. (She does this sometimes.)

    This species is sexually dimorphic; it's easier to look for the presence of a horn. This is just a reference image.

    Miss Hissypants is suffering from pre-molt syndrome. As I filled her water dish, she unexpectedly lunged toward me and slapped my hand with surprising strength. She then held this threat pose for several minutes.

    Miss Hissypants refused to eat her roach, so it had to be retrieved from her lair so that it wouldn't bother her if she molted. She slapped the tongs repeatedly and even hissed a few times.
