New additions, the freakiest bugs I could find
Nice girl there Mori! They are great inverts.
thanks Mike, I'm going to get pictures of the other two so that maybe you can sex them too
(oh, and the train from Toronto DOES go through ROME)
Very nice :drool:
They are very great. I wish I could care them but I haven´t the place for them.
Here are pictures of all three specimens I possess:
If anyone could sex them from these pictures that'd be excellent
How big are they, they all look like females. Very nice healthy ones at that. If you have a stop over in rome for any length of time, let me know.
they are all about 1.5" body length.
and if they are all fem's then i'm going to have to go searching for a male ;P
1.5" body lenth is pretty good size, the legs always make them look much bigger. The easiest way to sex them is to look at the palp length. Males are much larger. Here are two molts, the male is on the top and the female on the bottom of the picture.
Congrats for your new critters!
What is the difference between D. diadema and D. variegatus??
Those look cool! Are they hard to come by?
fairly hard to find as CB specimens, yes. At least in NA anyways.
Mori is right, they are not commen as CB babies. They are moderately easy to breed, I have 30 2nd instar CBB babies that I bred here with 2 more females with eggs.
Awesome Mike, post pictures if you have ANY!!!!
and send me some ;P (i wish )
Here are some little ones.
Mike, those rock, thank you for the pictures. How hardy are they as babies? do they EVER come off the corkbark (mine don't ;P )
They are not that bad as babies, just keep the humidity high, the tank moist and not too hot. Otherwise they have real bad molts. They do come off the cork and wander around, my adults even do once in a great while.
Yes they are. I was successful my first attempt so it must be easy
do they molt past maturity?
Some more info would be nice:
Are they communual?
What do you feed them?
How long do they live?
Are they safe to handle?
any other basic care info.
I was one of these in the pet store and might get it.
