They were darker so I think older. I only saw two, but I didn't dig. I don't think I have very many and I haven't seen mama for a few months. She stays under laying eggs and as far as I know it was the first time she's ever laid eggs. So I think she's a young mama. It just seems like there are a few born (hatched ) every few weeks.Mickie, were the larger ones that you saw a month ago the same color as these, or were they darker?
Gotta say, these are looking great!These guys stay under almost always. When I lift a piece of food, in other species I find a pile of babies beneath it. Not here! They don’t seem to hang out together and they stay deeper than most. I thought there were 6 in this photo but I’m only seeing 3 now. It’s hard to tell in this photo, but the one nearest the top is half the length and width of the others. I think if I dug, I would find bigger ones. I saw some a month ago, larger a with more color. Watching these grow is like watching paint dry. View attachment 262118
