I've had my hissers for a few months now, 2 adult females and some nymphs did come with them (they are now about the size of my pinkie nail), and one of the females is doing something I can't figure out. At first, I thought some babies were going to pop out but I don't see how that could happen given the lack of a male and how long I've had them. I guess I'm not searching the web the right way because I can't figure out what is going on lol. Are these babies or an internal organ inside the abdomen? I tried to post a vid but it would load. She is doing sort of a pulsating movement. Please help!

Mated females can keep on producing babies without needing to mate again, so expect regular births. Also, all females will sometimes push the ootheca out (it's a long white thing) and pull it back in, so don't panic if you see that happen. Females who have never mated will eventually just dump it.
