My little guys have gone through their 1st molt. They are about 3 weeks old and some look like they have almost doubled in size. I have significantly less then I started with. I suspect cannabillism even though O have never seen it happening. I have found escapees so it could be that also.

The color of the nyymphs is very interesting. The four feet are black. There is a black stripe down their back. The rest of the body is a translusint light green. Very interesting indeed.

When I get them to maturity I am going to write an article for this board on my procedures, if they'll have it. :eek:
