    She is facing head-down in a hole with her butt sticking out.
  3. PMS (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    PMS (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    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.

  5. C. marshalli, any takes on m/f?

    C. marshalli, any takes on m/f?

    C. marshalli, about 3’’. Has decent sized horn but don’t have any solid data on these being sexually dimorphic.
  6. Hissyfit (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    Hissyfit (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    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.

    I culled one of my male roaches.
  9. Miss Hissypants (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    Miss Hissypants (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    She got this name because she hissed at me when I prodded her out of the deli cup in which she had been living when I bought her. She has never hissed at me since, but she is stuck with the name.

    0.1 C. marshalli

    Buest guess is 4.5-5” DLS but the molt cam out in tiny pieces, so it is 100% speculation. LOL I got pretty lucky finding the piece i needed. :)
  15. ~2" C. marshalli

    ~2" C. marshalli

    A couple days post-molt. I know these guys are sexually dimorphic, where the males grow little or no horn. The molt was inconclusive as it was a little too torn up, but by this size (right around 2", molt measured 1.75" stretched DLS) shouldn't the horn be bigger/more defined on a female?
  16. Miss Hissypants (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    Miss Hissypants (♀ Ceratogyrus marshalli 5")

    I just rehoused her the day before, and she hasn't yet figured out that she can dig.

    5" Female Ceratogyrus marshalli [ventral sexing]

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