Oh, thanks! I am trying to figure out how to post a little 15second video of him ( i think it is a male) breaking the bronchial tubes and coming all the way out of the molt!! Will add to this thread when i can figure it out.

An interesting observation: the nymph was unable to climb the sides of the kritter keeper, however, the adult is able to. It now likes to hang out on the ceiling of the enclosure.
