I don't know how you got female, but I would say you can't because it's to small to see.

Hmm. I just hope :8o . Simple and effective ;)

Anyway, i'll try to check the exuvium in our medical biology laboratories. Any advices to soften the exuvium best? Water-soap or alcohol? -if alcohol, what percentage?-

PS: Thanx 4 all those rapid answers
PS2: @cacoseraph -> i just viewed your vid at youtube -the vid in which a pedeling tries to devour your finger- very nice vid and very nice replies to the comments

I'd say soap and water mix would be fine.

heh thanks. i do only respond back when i have something funny to say to the "mean" ones. or the ones about my finger nails. i mean seriously... all these crazy exotic bugs i'm playing with and those unimaginitive clods fixate on my freakin nails!

I'd say soap and water mix would be fine.
i've used water plain to good effect. on thing the soap will do that seems like an advantage to me is break down surface tension... keeps the water from balling up on the dang setae.



oh and one general thing... the exuvium get INSANELY fragile when they dry completely out. so be careful. i have crumbled some before =P
